How to Read a Poem (Terry Eagleton)

“This book is designed as an introduction to poetry for students and general readers. I have tried to make what some find an intimidating subject as lucid and accessible as possible; but some bits of the book are inevitably harder going than others. Less experienced readers might therefore prefer to start with Chapter 4 (‘In Pursuit of Form’), Chapter 5 (‘How To Read A Poem’) and Chapter 6 (‘Four Nature Poems’), before moving on to the more theoretical chapters. Even so, I think the book makes more sense if it is read from start to finish.” (from the book’s Preface)
