How to Read Poetry
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. Finally, read it one more time, taking the time to put all the puzzle pieces together and form an interpretation.
