WHY READ POETRY IN HIGH SCHOOL.
GOBA, RONALD J.
TEACHING STUDENTS TO ENJOY POETRY AS POETRY IS OFTEN NEGLECTED. TAKING PARTS OF A POEM OUT OF CONTEXT AND ANALYZING THEM MAKES THE STUDY OF POETRY EVERYTHING BUT PLEASURABLE TO STUDENTS AND TEACHERS ALIKE. THE STUDY OF FACTS ABOUT POETRY IS NECESSARY, BUT SHOULD BE COMBINED WITH THE STUDY OF THE FUNCTION, THE EFFECT, AND THE OPERATION OF A POEM. THESE, TOGETHER WITH THE STIMULATION OF IMAGINATION, THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF EXPRESSION, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DEEPER INSIGHT INTO LIFE, COMBINE TO MAKE THE STUDY OF POETRY BOTH INFORMATIONAL AND PLEASURABLE.
