Touched with Fire Summary


Touched with Fire: An Anthology of Poems by Edited by Jack Hydes

A collection of literature anthologies and reference books for Key Stage 3 onwards. This anthology has two main objectives: to introduce students to a wide range of poetry in English from the last 400 years, and to provide them with guidance on how to approach poetry examinations. The poems are divided into six collections, not by theme or by historical period, but as satisfying small anthologies of twenty-two poems each. Clear guidance is given on what is expected in an essay for a poetry examination, and actual answers are reproduced which help the student analyse what kind of response gets good marks and why.
