DESCRIPTION

Now in its second edition, Poetry: The Basics demystifies the traditions and forms of the world of poetry for all those who find it daunting or bewildering. Covering a wide range of poetic voices from Chaucer to children's rhymes, song lyrics and the words of contemporary poets, this book will help readers to appreciate poetry by examining: * technical aspects such as rhythm and measures * different tones of voice in poetry * the relationship between 'everyday' and 'poetic' language * how different types of poetry are structured * how the form and 'space' of a poem contribute to its meaning * some of the ways contemporary poets set to work. A must-read for all those wishing to get to grips with reading and writing poetry, this book is a lively and inspiring introduction to its many styles and purposes right up to the present-day.
