Poetry criticism is a subject central to the study of literature.

However, it is laden with technical terms that, to the beginning student, can be both intimidating and confusing.

This text provides a remedy, illuminating terms ranging from the iambus to the bob-wheel stanza, and forms from the Spenserian sonnet to modern "rap", with clarity and comprehensiveness.

It should be a useful guide through the terminology for undergraduates new to the subject.
