Poetry: A Modern Guide to Its Understanding and Enjoyment - Elizabeth A.,  Drew This book is directed to English speaker as to foreign , I found it easy to read , it unweaves the DNA of poetry , it helped me alot to understand the " Poetry " of English poetry , as I am not a native English speaker I always find it hard to taste English verses as well , and can't read translated poetry , I feel like biting my own teeth is much easier than reading one page , I have an idea in my mind that " Poetry is what is lost in translation "
" poetry lives in its own language and can't be separated from the original words in which it is created " said the author ,
The book discusses the poetic process and the analysis of the elements of poetic form , such as sound , imagery , words and the design of poems , and in part tow , speaks about love, nature , humanism , death and time in poetry and so on .... , its much like the ABC of poetry
