From the Publisher:

Reading Poetry provides an introduction to the ideas and techniques that can help students produce informed and exciting readings of poetry. Many readers will have already acquired the basis for self-conscious and self-critical reading strategies through their everyday responses to popular culture. This innovative new textbook will help develop these strategies and interpretive skills by recognizing and explaining the open and multi- dimensional qualities of the poetic text. At the same time, Reading Poetry is theoretically informed and up-to-date, taking into account the wealth of theoretical speculation about poetry, and literature in general, the twentieth century has produced. A wide spectrum of examples has been included, ranging from fifteenth-century lyrics and ballads to contemporary poetry from all over the English-speaking world.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: Reading Poetry provides an introduction to the ideas and techniques that can help one produce informed and exciting readings of poetry.
