Aristotle's Poetics can be a formidable text for students to read. This worksheet packet is designed to break down the text into a logical structure and prompt students to look for the argument and essential ideas Aristotle develops. This packet can function as a reading guide/notes for homework or in class activities. It it based off of the translation by Samuel Henry Butcher in the affordable Dover Thrift Edition (ISBN: 9780486295770). I developed this while following along with the free, online reading guide by John David Zuern, Associate Professor in the Department of English at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.
