  • DESCRIPTION

    The emotional power and intellectual challenge of metaphysical poetry are such that it still appeals to modern readers. This book looks at the many ways in which readers at different times have read metaphysical poetry, suggesting approaches for readers today.

  • Contents
  • FEATURES
    • Each title includes a wide-ranging yet carefully levelled introductory discussion of a literary period, genre or theme, to provide students with an excellent introduction to an area of literature.

    • Helps students to address the new assessment objective 4 ('demonstrate understanding of the significance and influence of the contexts in which literary texts are written and received') - worth up to 35% of the A level qualification under new guidelines.

    • Discussion questions and end-of-section tasks offer an invaluable resource for self study as well as helpful exam preparation.

    • A mini-anthology of texts and extracts saves teachers time searching for appropriate 'wider reading' texts.
