About this book
Students of literature find poetry, and in particular the discussion or analysis of a poem, the most testing of literary-critical tasks. Yet poetry continues to be set for study, and students and teachers will continue to be confronted with the necessity of explaining how a poem 'works' - how its meaning is conveyed. Studying Poetry seeks to address the difficulties of that study and shows how they can be solved, with several examples of worked answers to essay and examination-style questions and assignments.
