Poetry Appreciation: Thirteen Modern Poems Discussed.
Barnes, T. R.
Poetry analysis in this book focuses on the response of the reader to modern poetry so that he may be able to perceive form and life in what at first appear to be unrelated fragments, become accustomed to new rhythmic patterns, and enlarge his experience by reading poetry which reflects the contemporary world. Poems are "Dry Loaf" by Wallace Stevens; "Mundus et Infans" and "On this Island" by W. H. Auden; "A Peasant" by R. S. Thomas; "The Ball Poem" by John Berryman; "Waking in the Blue" by Robert Lowell; "The Witsun Weddings" by Philip Larkin; "On the Move" and "Considering the Snail" by Thom Gunn; and "The Thought-Fox" and "Thrushes" by Ted Hughes.
