She Walks in Beauty: A Woman's Journey Through Poems - Caroline Kennedy Poe: Poems - Edgar Allan Poe

I probably should have posted this during April but better late than never.  Last month was national poetry month and I read these two books.   I love reading poetry because it makes me think more about what I am reading kind of like when I am reading classics. I know that reading poetry isn't for everyone and I remember when I was in school I had a hard time reading and understanding them.   Here are some tips to make reading poetry a little easier.

 

1.  Read slowly

2.  Try a relaxed tone

3.  Pause at the end of each line.

4. Try reading the poem aloud

5. If you don't know a word look it up

6. Don't skim it

7. Be Patient

8. Try to visualize 

 

I hope that this was helpful.
