With examples from an extensive range of poets from Chaucer to today, The Poetry Toolkit offers simple and clear explanations of key terms, genres and concepts that enable readers to develop a richer, more sophisticated approach to reading, thinking and writing about poems. Combining an easy-to-use reference format defining and illustrating key concepts, forms and topics, with in-depth practice readings and further exercises, the book helps students master the study of poetry for themselves.
Now in its second edition, The Poetry Toolkit includes a wider range of examples from contemporary poetry and more American poetry. In addition, an extended close reading section now offers practice comparative readings of the kind students are most likely to be asked to undertake, as well as readings informed by contemporary environmental and urban approaches.
The book is also supported by extensive online resources, including podcasts, weblinks, guides to further reading and advanced study guides to reading poetry theoretically.
A tour de force of succinctness, clarity, and adroit cross referencing, it is not only a tour through every conceivable feature a reader could need - from the sonnet form to synloepha, from sesta rima to syllepsis - but an imaginative and arresting exposition of the way poets have used them, whether Dante or David Jones, Sappho or E E Cummings, Milton or Deryn Rees-Jones. Rhian Williams aims to set readers free by building confidence with genre and form, metre and rhyme, demystifying technicalities and terminology, providing follow up reading, and appealing to curiosity and the sense of experiment.
She urges readers to read poems aloud, to listen to sounds, mark rhythms, and imagine themselves inside the poem before moving out to its history and context.
After reading this book newcomers to poetry will learn to love reading and writing about it. The book ranges from the introductory what does "stress" mean? Throughout, the author provides clear frameworks for interpreting how poetry's formal structures participate in the work of meaning-making.
This book will relieve students' anxiety and deepen their understanding. I would certainly recommend this handbook for students who intend to pursue the study of poetry through their degree. The book is comprehensive in coverage and all the terms are fully explained and illustrated I learned a great deal from the wealth of information contained here and will certainly make extensive use of the book as a teaching resource.
Students will appreciate the clarity and concision of exposition and will note that the index and 'contents' page make it easy to find the information looked for Every reader will learn something from it - it is rare to have riches such as this in a single textbook.
The simplicity of the book's style, however, sacrifices none of the complexities of its topic. Chapters cover the eccentricities of truly understanding poetry from a reader's perspective. Packed with advice and tips for poetry appreciation, "The Poetry Toolkit" is an intriguing introductory dive in the world of the poet.

Сьюзан отпрянула и попыталась бежать, но призрак схватил ее за руку. - Не двигайся! - приказал. На мгновение ей показалось, что на нее были устремлены горящие глаза Хейла, но прикосновение руки оказалось на удивление мягким. Это был Стратмор.
