Combining a carefully organized anthology of poetry and an effective writing about literature text, Thinking and Writing about Poetry helps you become a better literary reader and better academic writer. Read more Read less. - By the author of the best-selling The Bedford Introduction to Literature, this book offers the same breadth of traditional and contemporary selections, the same clear and accessible coverage of the elements of poetry, the same provocative secondary materials and indepth treatment of selected poets, and the same pervasive concern with critical thinking and writing about poetry.
