5.0 out of 5 stars A treasure for poets and readers young and old., 9 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This is a remarkable book because of its content and because it became a best seller in America in a time when poetry is rarely in the headlines.
This book educates by explaining what poetry is. It helps to guide the way for someone wanting to get into poetry but who doesn't know where to start or whose poems to read.
It gives some fantastic examples of some of the best poetry around and discusses the circumstances of the poems creation and the effect that this can have on the reader. The book is divided into sections that show different types of poetry.
Giving advise on how to interpret poetry yet also describing poetry as endlessly interpretable it is more a poetical approach than analytical. Explaining how an ordinary person can fall in love with poetry using imagination and feeling.
