MEDIA REVIEWS
The description of critical approaches is sound, providing some interesting perspectives on the poetry. The central purpose of the book is to introduce students to the various critical outlooks available to them. The work succeeds on this level; it also manages to keep the reader s interest by not being overly exhaustive on each poem but, conversely, giving a full enough description to prevent any confusion over terms.
