Reading and writing poetry as a class assignment can be a rewarding experience—especially when it’s approached in a spirit of fun. This book explains how poets use words imaginatively in rhymed and metered verse as well as free verse. Poems can be humorous or serious, long or very short, joyful or sad—and this instructive, yet fun-to-read book points the way toward composing and reading poems of all kinds. It’s filled with examples from Homer through today. All titles in Barron’s Painless Series are written especially for classroom use for middle-school students.
