    A thorough, accessible, detailed read that will give you EVERYTHING you need in order to improve your poetry analysis at any level. Particularly impressed by the number of examples in specific works and the opportunity at the end to analyse a number of poems independently with tips and tricks.

    Such an effective guide. It feels very thorough, without being too heavy, as well as well-organised. I found it really helpful to dip in and out of when I began teaching A-level poetry!

    Brilliant for any English literature students to really be able to analyse poetry in more depth as well as those who are maybe less confident with poetry.
