4.0 out of 5 stars Poetics - a vital source through which to understand writing, 12 Oct 2002
If you have an interest in writing, or in Literature, or even philosophy or psychology, then Aristotle's Poetics is a very good book for you to read: Aristotle had a burning desire to understand the drives and ambitions of human beings -- he yearned to understand the human world. In the book, Malcolm Heath explains (very well, I might add) the thoughts of Aristotle, concerning his understanding of the human necessity for expression. If you want to be a writer, or want to comprehend the roots of Literature, Poetics is a vital source of essential and fundamental information. Heath additionally refers to many of Aristotle's other notes in order to present an unbiased and comprehensive case. I very much recommend this book to anyone, especially those who wish to write fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars the classic text, 29 April 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anyone studying literature or drama in particular needs to have read this book. It is the ultimate reference work for serious students, and the language is so straightforward and clear that it reads as if it were a contemporary work, and not the millennia-old masterpiece that it really is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction, 13 Mar 2012
The introduction by Malcom Heath was really good, made the reading so much easier. I recommend. Also, notes to the translation proved useful, although I have read most of the classics, Heath has obviously read more...
