How do I read a poem? Do I really understand poetry?This comprehensive guide demystifies the world of poetry, exploring poetic forms and traditions which can at first seem bewildering. Showing how any reader can gain more pleasure from poetry, it looks at the ways in which poetry interacts with the language we use in our everyday lives and explores how poems use language and form to create meaning.Drawing on examples ranging from Chaucer to children's rhymes, Cole Porter to Carol Ann Duffy, and from around the English-speaking world, it looks at aspects including: * How technical aspects such as rhythm and measures work* How different tones of voice affect a poem* How poetic language relates to everyday language* How different types of poetry work, from sonnets to free verse * How the form and "space" of a poem contributes to its meaning Poetry: The Basics is an invaluable and easy to read guide for anyone wanting to get to grips with reading and writing poetry.
