"This is a straightforward guide to the teaching of poetry and as such will be welcomed by teachers in primary and secondary schools of all kinds. Since its anchor is himself a poet, he book will, however, be enjoyed for its own sake as an essay on the nature of poetic experience.
In this book he discusses material and methods appropriate to successive age groups from five to fifteen; there are abundant quotations and references to specific poems, tying down the discussion to the concrete and the particular. Everyone concerned with the teaching of literature at its most imaginative will be grateful for his insight and his practical help."
