This graded course for teaching students to understand and enjoy poetry introduces students to the pleasures of reading and discussing poetry, through a varied anthology. The many poets of the Caribbean are presented, along with a wide range of material from Africa, USA, the UK and the rest of the world. The series offers: carefully graded selections; every poem is supported by questions for class discussion and written work; key terms for studying poetry introduced in the activity sections; many poems suitable for choral orchestration; and a wide selection of new poems and established favourites. This book is an introduction to reading and discussing poetry for second-year students. There are many poems to read out loud and questions suitable for verbal discussion. Derek Walcott, winner of the 1992 Nobel Prize for Literature, is featured in this volume, in "Bite In 3" and in "Time for Poetry".
