The Language of Poetry
The Language of Poetry:
- develops the student’s ability to read and evaluate poetic texts of many kinds
- includes activities, commentaries and extensions to each extract
- covers a variety of poetic language, ranging from songs, advertisements and spoken language to the more traditional forms of the sonnet, ode and free verse
- includes poetry from Philip Larkin, Maya Angelou, Dylan Thomas and Tony Harrison.
The Routledge INTERTEXT series aims to develop readers’ understanding of how texts work. It does this by showing some of the designs and patterns in the language from which they are made, by placing texts within the contexts in which they occur, and by exploring relationships between them.
The series consists of a foundation text, Working with Texts: A core introduction to language analysis, which looks at language aspects essential for the analysis of texts, and a range of satellite texts. These apply aspects of language to a particular topic area in more detail. They complement the core text and can also be used alone, providing the user has the foundation skills furnished by the core text.
