This “Best Of” volume of Poetry for Students is comprised of brand new entries on poems that have been previously covered in this series. The entries include poems considered to be part of the literary canon and “most studied” as well as more contemporary and popular works. These entries are completely rewritten and updated, providing a new voice and containing all new criticism and images. “Best Of” volumes continue to feature a diverse mix of author nationality, ethnicity, and gender along with the time period in which the works were written or set.
Each volume of Poetry for Students contains easily accessible and content-rich discussions of the literary and historical background of 16 works from various cultures and time periods. Each poem covered in this new resource was specially chosen by an advisory panel of teachers and librarians -- experts who have helped us define the information needs of students and ensure the age-appropriateness of this reference's content.
See Table of Contents for the list of works included in this volume. Our entire For Students series is available in ebook format.
