A Compact Students’ Companion to Poetry is designed to make the reading and appreciation of poetry enjoyable and empirical. Poetry is all around us – in the media, in advertising, in religious ceremonies, in politics, in our everyday language and thoughts. It is essential to adopt a more hands-on and interactive approach in the teaching and learning of poetry. The poems included in this book range from verses based on emerging issues to more celebrated compositions whose themes and entertainment value have stood the test of time. The book is specifically helpful for high school students and university and college students in their introductory year. In addition, the book provides a comprehensive insight to general readers of poetry.
