Helen Vendler


"Vendler does a fantastic job teaching students techniques for building a critique without destroying the integrity of the poems. . . . Her diverse selection, spanning both canonical and contemporary poetry, helps students understand the ways in which poets and poems speak to each other across centuries, gender, and race."
-Camille-Yvette Welsch, Pennsylvania State University

"What makes Poems, Poets, Poetry valuable is the fact that there is so much about reading and thinking about poetry in it aside from the actual poems themselves."
-George Fragopoulous, Quensborough Community College, CUNY
