Multiple works by major poets allow students to compare different poems by the same author. The overall theme of the book asserts that poetry is a crafted art that is either molded by, added to, or reacting against tradition. A Brief History essays throughout the book discuss the social and cultural contexts of poems, major developments in the history of poetry, and technical literary terms.
