By the author of the best-selling The Bedford Introduction to Literature, this book offers the same breadth of traditional and contemporary selections, the same clear and accessible coverage of the elements of poetry, the same provocative secondary materials and indepth treatment of selected poets, and the same pervasive concern with critical thinking and writing about poetry. Writing about poetry is similar to writing about other topics, although certain techniques help in this particular area. Even though not all poets have followed the standard rules of writing, they do still apply to you and your essay. Methods: Explication is a way of interpreting the poem based on its formal elements.
