Bell, A. Joan
English Quarterly, v17 n1 p60-81 Spr 1984

Finds that many students who dislike classroom poetry discussions write good poetry themselves and concludes that this discrepancy results from teachers attempting to explain too much and taking the joy of discovery in the reading of poetry away from the student.
