Modern Poetry in the Classroom.
Hyndman, Roger, Ed.
Individual approaches to the reading and study of 14 modern poems that have proved their worth and appeal to adolescents are offered in this publication. The poems--by such poets as Marianna Moore, Stephen Spender, W.H. Auden, Wallace Stevens, and Robinson Jeffers--are reprinted; and each is followed by a discussion in which a high school teacher explains his reasons for teaching the poem, partially explicates it, and comments on techniques that he has found to be successful in teaching that particular poem.
