Review '...Kenneth Verity is immensely well-read and his love of poetry is eloquently conveyed in this enjoyable and highly readable book, taking the reader on a chronological journey from the Epic of Gilgamesh to T. S. Eliot and Ted Hughes. Some guides to a subject could more or less be written by any expert in that field, but a small minority is unique creations of a rare individual who has their own view. Unfortunately most of the latter type of guides fails to be good general guides. Verity's genius makes him the exception. This book is arranged in chronological chapters that trace the evolution of poetry as an art form. At the same time, each chapter gives a most practical explanation of how that aspect of poetry that it covers works and why. The book is immensely readable, hugely informative, and adds to the ability of the reader to enjoy and to create poetry. It is a classic.' Epictetus Product Description The entire history of Western poetry is surveyed in this study, from the ancient world, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the modern period. Two hundred poems extracts are included, and 10 poets are covered in depth, with critical appraisals of their lives and work. Problems of translation in poetry are carefully considered, and the book provides a working definition of poetry, calling it a form of expression human beings turn to when they need to say something important in a memorable way.
