One of the best ways to learn close reading of a text, whether prose or poetry, is to learn from the way others do it. Once a week we will feature a poem or short passage of prose accompanied by 500-1,000 words of critical analysis. The slot will feature work by students from subscribing schools, with contributions from teachers, academics and the writers of our guides.
