Product Description:

This study guide from Progeny Press, though tackling a slightly different topic, is just as well done. The format is much the same, although it requires three books to use (all of which we offer very inexpensively and are listed below for your convenience). The study guide begins with an introduction to poetry and its historical background. The first part of the book offers a short lesson in types of poetry, and the remaining two parts offer several lessons each. The second part focuses on elements of poetry, and the lessons deal specifically with lines, words, sounds, rhyme, imagery, tone, and other specific poetic elements. The last part in the book looks at designated forms of poetry such as the sonnet, blank verse, ballad, limerick, free verse, etc. The lessons in these two parts both begin with some information in the guide, and then the student is direct to read a poem or two per lesson and answer questions about them. As with Progeny's other guides, these challenge students to think critically about the selections. Scripture based questions are also tied into the themes in "deeper thinking" questions. 84 pages. - Mel

Needed help with the poetry part of a literature class.
User on Aug 11, 2020
We have used Progeny Press guides for years with all the kids but have never studied poetry with PPG. After having graduated several kids, I like to look for products/ tools I haven't used before to keep things interesting for mom and to suit each kid individually. This looks like a breath of fresh air!

I love progeny press. Even if the book is not a faith based book, progeny brings out the faith based applications.

A shopper on Jul 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Many are American, but not all. Perhaps half are American.
