Duncan Wu, University of Glasgow Based on their extensive teaching experience, the authors provide a lively route map through the main aspects of poetry such as sound effects, rhythm and metre, the typographic display of poems on the page and the language of poetry using practical examples throughout. o Packed full of examples, from the work of Shakespeare to Edwin Morgan and from Sylvia Plath to John Agard o Detailed index of poets, works, terms, forms & concepts o Full glossary of poetic terms, from /acatalectic/ to /wrenched accent/, with cross-references and page references of examples New for this edition: o End-of-chapter exercises and follow-up research tasks o New readings of modern women's poetry o Section on How to Write Poetry with exercises o Suggestions for further reading -- both books and websites
