Preface This instructor's manual is designed to be a resource of commentaries, interpretations, and suggestions for teaching the works included in Poetry: An Introduction, Fifth Edition.
The entries offer advice about how to approach individual selections and suggest possible answers to questions raised in the text.
No attempt has been made to generate definitive readings of the works; the text selections are rich enough to accommodate multiple approaches and interpretations. Our hope is that instructors will take what they find useful and leave the rest behind.
Inevitably, instructors will disagree with some of the commentaries, but perhaps such disagreements will provide starting points for class discussion. In addition to offering approaches to selections, many of the entries suggest topics for discussion and writing. The format of the entries varies from itemized responses to specific questions to essays that present overviews of individual works.
This flexibility allows each entry to be more responsive to the nature of a particular work and the questions asked about it in the text. The manual includes selected bibliographies for authors treated in depth, and critical readings are mentioned throughout the manual when they are felt to be particularly useful resources for teaching a work.
Introductions in this manual offer suggestions for approaching Poetry: Your teaching suggestion should be approximately fifty words long and suggest ways of teaching a particular author or selection that have been especially effective in your classroom experience.
