There is no better way for you to learn about poetry and to understand its elements than with PERRINE'S SOUND AND SENSE: AN INTRODUCTION TO POETRY. As both an introduction to poetry and an anthology, this classic best-seller succinctly covers the basics of poetry with detailed chapters on the elements of poetry (denotation and connotation, imagery, figurative language, allusion, tone, rhythm and meter, pattern, etc.), unique materials on evaluating poetry, exemplary selections, and exercises and study questions that help readers understand each selection. Thomas R. Arp and Greg Johnson have assiduously continued the Perrine tradition over several recent editions. Every chapter introduction in this compact and concise anthology bears the mark of Laurence Perrine's crisp, clean, and descriptive prose, and every poem selected as an example is a perfect illustration of the concept at hand. Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced reader of poems, you can profit from this book's step-by-step method for understanding how a poem does what it does. Suggestions for writing help students to sort out their feelings and ideas, enabling them to assist others in sharing their experience.
