Reviews

"[An] accessible guide... [Foster's] discussion of symbolism is particularly effective and may help readers learn to actually enjoy the experience of interpreting a poem... Students struggling to understand poetry, or even English instructors struggling to teach it, could benefit immensely from Foster's guidance." -- Publishers Weekly
"Foster's enthusiasm is infectious...he has clearly enjoyed teaching and sharing his love of literature with his students during his long career. How to Read Poetry Like a Professor is not unlike that freshman English class that everyone vies to enroll in-entertaining and informative without being intimidating. The curriculum is on point, and in the end, you'll have the tools to truly `get' poetry, with all its manifest themes and variations." -- BookPage
