Metaphysical Poets Summary

Metaphysical Poets by Linda Cookson

This series introduces A-level students to a variety of critical and conflicting opinions on major works of literature. The books aim to present clear lines of thought or analysis in a reasonably short space - reflecting the time limitations with which students are faced in the exam. They concentrate on single areas of thought or study reflecting the type of essays students must write at A-level. Quotations and close textual reference are intended to focus the students' minds on the work itself and the books use language familiar to A-level students so that ideas and arguments are readily understood.
