52 Ways of Looking at a Poem Paperback



British poetry is in a wonderful state at present. Never have so many poets been saying so many interesting things in such lively, up-to-date ways.

Yet many people feel shut out or know little about poetry and have no idea where to begin.

In this groundbreaking book, Ruth Padel takes fifty-two of the poems she discussed in her newspaper column - a year's worth - and suggests ways of reading them.

The poems are by a wide range of living poets, on experiences we all share - love, sex, death, nature, history, war - which show how reading a poem can enhance everyone's life as powerfully and as pleasurably as reading novels or watching a film.
