Many students find poetry hard to handle; for some, this difficulty is almost insurmountable. Compared to other literary forms, poetry is often deemed inaccessible. Poetry Made Easy is intended primarily for college students of English who are intimidated by the experience of undertaking a serious study of poetry. This book covers all significant elements of poetry and has what most outlines for an introductory course on poetry would include, but goes about teaching the course differently. The minimal theory that informs this book reflects a fresh approach to the study of poetry in which the focus is around the poems themselves. Poetry Made Easy attempts to simplify the study of poetry without losing its richness; it provides guidance while encouraging creativity.
