Reading Poetry : An Introduction

Furniss, Thomas and Bath, Michael (1996) Reading Poetry : An Introduction. Longman. ISBN 0133552985

Full text not available in this repository.


ReadingPoetry stands out from other introductions to poetry in its brilliant combination of practical guidance and theoretical savvy. Students who use this book will be helped to enjoy and discuss poems, introduced to some of the major varieties of poetic criticism, and invited to reflect on what makes poetry important today. Reading Poetry is, in my view, the best introductory book on the study of poetry available.
