How to Read Poetry
Reading and interpreting poetry is often a frustrating event for students. Try this method, though! Read it once for an overview. Read it again, annotating the literary devices you notice. Finally, read it one more time, taking the time to put all the puzzle pieces together and form an interpretation. While this method won't solve all of your challenges, it may allow you to slow down, practice, and form stronger interpretations of difficult poetry!
