Confronting the dark art of poetry? Trying to disentangle labyrinthine patterns of poetic meaning or just want to get a top grade in a Literature exam? Then look no further.

Trying to disentangle labyrinthine patterns of poetic meaning or just want to get a top grade in a Literature exam? Then look no further. Whether you are a student with a keen interest in literature, or a teacher wondering where to start with those poems haunting your curriculum, this book will show you the way. Comprising a series of intense, yet accessible, explorations of twenty famous poems, these books expose the inner circuitry of poetry. Each poem is dissected to reveal the various devices used by poets and how these devices conspire to create living poems. Form, structure, metre, imagery, symbolism, sound effects are analysed with an expert eye. In showing the way into these poems we give readers the analytical tools to dissect other poems. Like all good literature, we hope that the specific will bring you to the universal. Whether striving for that elusive A*, or that even more elusive enlightened class, let Art of Poetry be your light in the darkness.
