Homework Help: English Poetry

Posted by Elda on Tuesday, February 13, 2007 at 2:16pm.

Could someone please explain Charlotte Smith poem "on being cautioned against walking on a headland overlooking the sea" ?

or can you tell me where I can get explanations to poetry which I find very difficult to understand. thanks

I don't know this poem and cannot find it online, so it must be copyrighted.

Here are some websites that can help you deal better with poetry assignments:

You may or may not be assigned to write an explication of a poem, but this site is still helpful in the "how to read poetry" points it makes.

=)

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. This poem is an anthology "Breen, Women Romantic Poets" if you can find that book:
