Getting to grips with poetry and its terminology can be one of the most intimidating parts of literary study. The Poetry Toolkit helps with this problem by giving clear and concise guidance about reading and discussing poetry in an easy-to-use format. By providing accessible commentary on the formal traditions of poetry across the ages and by emphasizing the empowering effect of technical vocabulary, this book encourages confidence and enjoyment. Its simple and clear explanations of key terms, genres and concepts enable readers to develop a richer, more sophisticated approach to reading, thinking and writing about poems. Moving from introductory overviews to short sections on key concepts, forms and topics, each entry includes a technical definition, a review of its historical and cultural significance, illustrative examples from a range of poems and finally additional reading and suggestions for further work. The Poetry Toolkit offers a practical solution to the difficulties of reading and writing about poetry. It offers any student of poetry the key tools needed to read, study and write about poetry with confidence.

Review:

'Whether you're a new-comer to poetry or a longtime reader, Rhian Williams' The Poetry Toolkit offers welcomed guidance. The book ranges from the introductory (what does "stress" mean?) to the sophisticated and complex. 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.'
