    Study guide for our introduction to poetry for high school students. The guide with the text sets the student on firm ground before tackling other studies in poetry. Lessons include Edgar Allan Poe's "The Philosophy of Composition," which is Poe's step-by-step approach to writing poetry. Poe uses for his example "The Raven." Other lessons offer information about figurative expression, patterned repetition in sounds and stress, forms of poetry such as sonnets and stanzas, and compression of thought through multiple meanings, imagery and symbolism. Some of the poets represented in these lessons are Housman, Poe, Wordsworth, Donne, Hopkins, Tennyson, Blake, Byron, Shakespeare, Pope, Pound, Noyes, and others. This guide with text is ideal for students just starting high school or for anyone who is interested in learning more about poetry.

    One of the books in our "Writing and Poetry Series." This book was written as a continuation of Moping Melancholy Mad: An Introduction to Poetry. The emphasis in this book is to show the student that poetry is the relating of experience through words. Chapter one is an essay by Arlo Bates on "Foundations of Work," an argument that any appreciation of literature must come with an intelligent reading of the work. Other chapters offer an objective approach to poetry and information about imagery, metaphors, personification, metonymy, paradox, irony, allusion, and tone in poetry. Some of the poets represented in this book are Bryant, Hopkins, Dickinson, Browning, Herrick, Donne, Frost, Tennyson, Milton, and others.
