To help students find delight and rational inspiration in verse, teachers might utilize numerous methods. Firstly, an introduction may be given on the course by expressing aims and processes, and by questioning students about to what extent they think reading and studying poetry is significant. The lecturer must engage the entire students, particularly the reluctant students; the technique of visualizing of imagination, a number of poems to them and letting the students look till they see the exact link between the text and the images; the images are not alone but the overall scene consists of separate images and symbols, this is what can be seen as one of the significant outcomes of this approach and then they enjoy it. After that, each student can understand the poem via this technique. Then the teacher may read the poem and show the images that can explain the poem, at the same time. This will facilitate the difficult task of the students. This procedure supports students to learn the traditional things teachers explain about poetry, such as the terms, symbols, and kinds of poetry, though time providing pleasure for the student simultaneously.
