Reading and interpreting poetry is often a frustrating event for students. Try this method, though! Read it once for an overview. Read it again, annotating the literary devices you notice.

While this method won't solve all of your challenges, it may allow you to slow down, practice, and form stronger interpretations of difficult poetry!
