Summary

Viewed as one of the most practical and most teachable introductory poetry texts by both poets and instructors alike, WESTERN WIND continues in its fourth edition to teach by example and to provide an outstanding collection of classic and contemporary poems. The overall pedagogical strategy is to teach by showing rather than telling; that is, the text focuses on examples to elucidate the elements of poetry, rather than relying upon strict definitions. The text also includes exercises, chapter summaries, games, diagrams, illustrations, and 4-color reproductions of great works of art. The fourth edition incorporates many new poets and expanded coverage of women and ethnic poets.
