A best-selling introduction to poetry for more than 50 years, PERRINE'S SOUND AND SENSE: AN INTRODUCTION TO POETRY, 15e, succinctly covers the basics with detailed chapters on the elements of poetry, unique materials on evaluating poetry, exemplary selections, and exercises and study questions that guide understanding. Every chapter introduction bears the mark of Laurence Perrine's crisp, clean, and descriptive prose, and every poem selected as an example brings text concepts to life. With an emphasis on teaching students to read, understand, and evaluate poetry, this compact and concise anthology provides a systematic guide for discovering how and what a poem means. Its suggestions for writing also help students sort out their feelings and ideas, enabling them to assist others in sharing their experience. The 15th edition contains over 50 new poems, a new Featured Poet (Sylvia Plath), and a new poet in the Contemporary Collection (Louise Gluck).
