Descrizione

<i>Poetry Explained for the Use of Young People</i> by Richard Lovell Edgeworth undertakes the laborious task of deconstructing poetry for the benefit of young readers so that they are able to appreciate the essence and meaning of words in rhyme. Edgeworth highlights the lack of understanding and imperfect knowledge of words and phrases as one of the mains reasons for making incorrect assumptions related to poetry. This problem is not just relevant for students but poets themselves. In this context, <i>Poetry Explained for the Use of Young People</i> provides detailed insights into the use of different styles of writing, selection of words and phrases as well meters which signify the tone of the poem. <br><br>The title is spread across six chapters along with an introduction that postulates the different styles with the help of extracts from various poems by well-known poets. Edgeworth chooses six works of poetry which signify separate styles of writing and provides meanings and explanations for chosen stanzas. These include works by Collin, Gray and Milton among others. Shakespeare's speech of Henry the Fifth is particularly well researched and the author is able to bring out finer nuances that many readers might not notice even after repeated readings. <br><br>Edgeworth takes on the bold task of bringing out elements of poetry which some might find frivolous as he himself points out in the preface but just a glance through <i>Poetry Explained for the Use of Young People</i> will put all doubts to rest as this is one title that can be used as a ready reference for students, poets and especially casual readers looking to understand the true meaning of the poetry they adore.
