Product description

"I dwell in Possibility- A fairer House than Prose-" While we think of poetry as the best words in the best order, we sometimes forget how important its poetic or metaphoric thinking is to various subjects such as writing, speaking, business, and science. The Art of Poetry is an excellent middle or high school curriculum that teaches the practice of reading a poem closely and absorbing its beauty. The Art of Poetry contains 16 chapters and over 100 poems. The first eight chapters cover the elements of poetry (such as images, metaphor, rhythm, and tone); the final chapters cover the forms of poetry (such as ode, villanelle, and open verse). Each chapter includes an extensive explication of one poem, along with exercises and discussion questions on additional poems. Biographies of fifty-one poets are included along with a glossary of terms and an index of all the poems and authors. Also available are several suggested teaching schedule options and an application section with ideas on how to continue a study of poetry. A free downloadable MP3 file with readings of most of the poems from this book is available online from The Art of Poetry Teacher's Edition is also available. It features the entire student text, along with answer keys, teaching tips, and detailed explications, and quizzes.
