Summary

The way in which analysis of a poem can increase the student's enjoyment of it is illustrated and discussed. The teacher is offered one short poem, written by a fifth grade student, which can be used as an exercise in poem analysis. It is believed that the poem analyzed, "The Ball," which is comprised of 11 words, is effective as an introduction to poetry at various levels; is an illustration of Joyce's notion of epiphany; and is a practical example of Coleridge's definition of a legitimate poem. Through use of such an analysis, it is believed that the student is more easily introduced to what he is looking for when he reads a poem, what kind of pleasure the poem might give him, and how he can compound that pleasure.
