Poetry: A Modern Guide to Its Understanding and Enjoymentby Elizabeth A. Drew
The aim of this Book is to make the reading of poetry an exploration which constantly reveals new insights to the reader about himself as well as about the poets and their work. Because Elizabeth Drew believes that poetry is written to be read and enjoyed, she quotes many poems, old and new, familiar and unfamiliar. Her first chapters speak of the poetic process: language, symbolism, and rhythms. The rest of the book is devoted to a collection and discussion of poems on the great human themes love, religion, humanity that recur in every age and are given their most intense and memorable expression in poetry.
Analyzes and discusses the craftsmanship of the poet and the elements of poetry. With the use of many examples the author reveals the poet's interpretation of human existence.
