Edward Hirsch’s How to Read a Poem and Fall in Love with Poetry

In a nod to National Poetry Month, the Poetry Foundation has posted the first chapter of Edward Hirsch’s superb How to Read a Poem and Fall in Love with Poetry. One of my favorite all-time reads. If you haven’t read this book, dip into the first chapter now.

  2. Thanks for the tip on this.

    So completely at work that it’s hard to find time to read about the work sometimes. But I must try to at least read the sample chapter. His idea of the “trance poem” and applying it to some by Dickinson seems particularly interesting to me.
