As you can probably already tell, I greatly dislike this book. Sure, it might take you by the hand and lead you through a vast number and variety of poems. However, the book has exactly one interpretation for each poem and if you don't nail it exactly, you get penalized in AP lit. Moreover, finding answers to the questions presented in the book is quite difficult.

It's not in the back of the book and it's not easy to find on the internet. Consequently, you never really know when you have a correct or incorrect interpretation of a poem unless Mrs.

Gray validates your claims. It's a shame that the book does not really allow loose interpretations of the selected poems. View 2 comments. What I liked most about this book, compared to other instructive books of poetry, is the selection of formalist poetry.

Granted, it seemed like half of it was Emily Dickinson and I'm not even sure if that's an exaggeration to be honest but that's okay because Emily Dickinson had some great poems and her layers are often friendly to the understanding.

This book offers a very intensive introduction to how it intends to appraise the poems which makes it great for anyone new to poetry, as well as an extensive look at the form and sound of formalism. It's not quite as good for contemporary poems as many other poetry guides on the market--but that is a problem which solves itself, as the majority of books on the market are a contemporary focus.

Sep 09, Stephan Anstey rated it liked it. It's a bit dry, but tons of great poems. I really like how they go over meter, it's one of the better tutorials on the matter. I don't particularly love the organization of the book, and I really wish there were a bit more on each poet - more than the years they lived.

My favorite part of the book are the guiding questions. Very helpful as you try to breakdown and understand a poem. The most offensive thing to me was the little dissertation on how a poem is determined to be 'great. Oct 25, Dini rated it really liked it Shelves: nonfiction. This was the poetry bible for first-year students in my English major. Very useful, especially for those who need guidance in understanding poetry, like me for instance ;P Those questions at the end of each poem, I can't tell you how much that helped me form some semblance of interpretation.

I just found my copy of this book actually it's my sister's copy, I used her old books for class among other books that I forgot I still have, so I guess it would be useful whenever I feel the need for some poetic spirit.

Jul 06, Tamsin Barlow rated it really liked it. It is good every once in a while to read a text book, to stretch yourself beyond your usual comfortable limits, to give yourself homework. And, among all the books you are reading, to have a book of poetry to pop into now and then-- just to wake you from your drowsy comfort.

Dec 17, Adrian rated it it was amazing. My high school literature poetry textbook, used by the teacher who taught me to love poetry. I love the selections in here, and the way that it taught me to understand meter and form to appreciate the skill of a poet. Dec 07, Xenophon Hendrix rated it really liked it.

This book is suitable for self-teaching for those who want to learn more about poetry. May 03, Randy Cauthen rated it it was ok.

How did this get to be the standard text? The dude's taste is dubious, his ear is dubious, and he's not a poet. Jun 10, l. May 04, Charles Joseph Albert rated it it was amazing Shelves: mind-altering , justly-famous.

Truly excellent survey of English poetry. Jan 12, Tama rated it really liked it. This introduction to poetry is standard. Basic elements from pattern, to figurative language, imagery, allusions, rhythms, tones are all discussed simply and cogently with classic examples. Originally started off as basic first year college Nov 13, Izzy rated it it was ok. Old friend or nemesis. A paperback of this sixth edition was the textbook in my first intro to poetry class.

Or maybe it was one of the texts in an English class? Flashbacks reading this now. May 02, Zetykarangastu10gmail. Com is currently reading it. This book make me interesting, i would like to read more deeper. Note: required reading I hate the break down of poetry..

This was an alright book, a little long with reading all the poems at the end of each chapter. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This is a very good book for teaching the elements of poetry and how to explicate poems. I only have two complaints about the book--at times I think the authors could have gone into a little more detail in their definitions before presenting poems to look at, and they don't entirely understand sarcasm as they feel its only purpose is to tear down in one way or another.

Otherwise, it is organized in such a way that it focuses the reader on the important issues of poems first i. A must for anyone interested in really diving into and understanding poetry. Jul 13, Jason rated it really liked it.

Perrine's Sound and Sense: An Introduction to Poetry

Item Preview

Both a concise introduction to poetry and an anthology, this classic best-seller succinctly covers the basics of poetry with chapters on the elements of poetry imagery, figurative language, allusion, tone, rhythm and meter, pattern, etc. Every poem included in this collection is a perfect illustration of the poetic concept at hand, and every reader can benefit from the book's step-by-step examination of how a poem does what it does. Using an integrated "whole language" approach and continual reinforcement of skills, the text shows respect for students' intelligence, maturity, and interests. The text includes stories of Vicky and Jason, two children who the reader follows throughout the text. It happens all around, every day to make the best lifelong learners. As the United States seeks to reverse trends in overweight and obesity, readers will learn how these three professions have a central responsibility in creating an environment that supports, encourages and promotes physical activity for all people. This was the first, and remains the only, university-level text to make media literacy central to its approach, and given recent national and global turmoil, its emphasis on media use and democracy could not be more timely.
