Summary

Teachers have to decide what poems should be taught and how they should be presented. The teacher ought to choose poems which he himself likes and which he expects that his students will like. Once chosen, the poem needs to be taught as a "meaningful whole" with emphasis on its unique structure and shape and on the significance of the parts in relation to the whole. The poem should be studied as a poem, not as an element of biography or history. Finally, musical elements of the poem, heard as it is read aloud, add to the enjoyment of the poem and, in fact, may be an integral part of its meaning. (JS)
