    Highly useful as a guide in reading and studying poetry be it as an individual or as an educator. The section on defining what Poetry is truly resonated and struck a chord within me. The suggested activities also seem worth an attempt for use in the classroom setting, some of which I will be attempting to implement in the upcoming semester. A fruitful read.
