Who, for instance, is Shelleys Ozymandias? What is the Lewis Carrolls Snark? Who is Wallace Stevenss Emperor of Ice-Cream? Or indeed, who is you in a poem? In this perceptive and playful new book, an acclaimed poet looks at some of the greatest poems and considers the number of individual puzzles at their heart, casting light on how we should approach these conundrums as readers. From riddling to double entendres, mysterious titles to red herrings, Fuller unpicks the puzzles in works that range from Browning to Bishop, Empson to Eliot, Shelley to Stevens, to help the reader reach the rewards and revelations that lie at the center of some best-loved poems.
