What's more, the poems are also grouped into various themes; there are examination and essay writing tips; a sample question and two essays (one that is good and one that is not-so good); as well as a glossary of literary terms. A detailed bibliography is also included.
This handy tool will also assist students who are studying the subject on their own.
Teachers of literatures of English should also find this guide useful.
Even those individuals, West Indian and non-West Indian, who enjoy poetry in general will find this text to be quite enjoyable, especially as each of the poems has also been included. Thus, buyers get two for the price of one, the poem and its analysis. That is a great advantage since many poetry study guides that I have read do not include the actual poem.

This poetry guide is quite good since it includes critical analyses of about 20 poems from little known as well as world-renown poets, ranging from W. H. Auden, Kamau Brathwaite, Gerard Manley Hopkins, to David Dabydeen, Lorna Goodison, James Berry and more.
Anyone who enjoys poetry or is seriously studying poetry should purchase a copy of this guide. The second edition, though, in my opinion is even better.
So whether the first or second edition is purchased, it is a WIN/WIN situation for the buyer.
