Kerstin  Hensel - Playful Paper


What actually is a good poem?

Poetry is often thought of as being difficult. Yet poetry is everywhere – in functional texts, in songs, in advertising. Kerstin Hensel, herself a poet of note and a lecturer in poetry, has examined all kinds of texts and explains clearly and understandably what a good poem is and what distinguishes a successful poem from a bad one and one that is a complete failure. She demonstrates that even the most difficult of poems can be understood and judged by their quality.

With her knowledgeable handbook she has paved the way for everyone – and not just poetry lovers – to find a relaxed approach to poetry.
