Welcome to the LiCOR guide to poetry. This module has been divided into the three units listed below. If you are visiting this module for the first time, we recommend you proceed through each of these units in numerical order. Otherwise, feel free to follow your own itinerary.

  1. Introduction to poetry (outlines what poetry is and introduces some basic strategies for making sense of it)
  2. Elements of poetry (identifies and explores the building blocks out of which poems are made)
  3. Guidelines for interpreting poetry (provides exercises and advice on how to interpret individual poems)



If you would like to continue your exploration of poetry further, we have compiled a list of additional poetry resources here.
