Book Description

An Introduction to Poetry is an abridged, excerpted guide for a first college course in poetry. Assuming a student whose understanding of the subject has not made it beyond prejudices about “openness of interpretation,” “expression of feeling,” and “emptiness of meaning,” this text uses written lectures  to guide the student through the tricky question of interpretation, the understanding and use of poetic elements, the valley of forms and non-forms and finally into the use of poetry for protest, resistance and empowerment.  Each chapter is designed to occupy one week of a full-semester course.
