If I were teaching a metrical poetry class, or a semester-length general poetry class, I would reach for this book. Oliver's writing style, though occasionally a bit... idiosyncratic... is down-to-earth and inviting. She introduces rather a lot of terminology, but in a matter-of-fact way that seems to engage rather than repel.
