Poetry Criticism

Getting Started

Finding literary criticism on poetry can be challenging, especially if you are studying new or obscure works. If you are unable to find criticism on a particular poem, consider looking at criticism of other poems by the same author, and making connections to the poem you are studying. You may also do research on poetic devices, literary movements, and historical or theoretical context to help ground your research in current academic practices.
