Witty, direct and articulate, Peter Barry illustrates the most important components of poetry at paintings, protecting many various different types of verse, from conventional types to leading edge models of the artwork, similar to 'concrete' poetry, minimalism and word-free poems. The emphasis is on meanings instead of phrases, having a look past technical units like alliteration and assonance in order that poems are understood as dynamic buildings growing particular ends and effects.

The 3 sections disguise gradually increasing components - 'Reading the strains' bargains with such fundamentals as imagery, diction and metre; 'Reading among the traces' matters broader concerns, similar to poetry and context, and the examining of sequences of poems, whereas 'Reading past the strains' appears at 'theorised' readings and the 'textual genesis' of poems from manuscript to print.

Reading poetry is for college students, teachers and lecturers searching for new methods of discussing poetry, and all these heavily attracted to poetry, even if as readers or writers.
