Introduction to Poetry by Billy Collins
Right from the get-go this poem has a scholastic feel. We start with a title that is basically straight out of a course catalog. Add to that the fact that the speaker of the poem is a teacher albeit an unusual one , and we're all set for school. In the poem, the speaker a teacher describes how he tries to get "them" the students to approach a poem. But try as he might, the teacher can't get the students to appreciate the poem or poetry at all—any of this sound familiar?
I want them to waterski across the surface of a poem waving at the author's name on the shore. But all they want to do is tie the poem to a chair with rope and torture a confession out of it. Add to list. I say drop a mouse into a poem and watch him probe his way out, or walk inside the poem's room and feel the walls for a light switch. They begin beating it with a hose to find out what it really means.

But all they want to do is tie the poem to a chair with rope and torture a confession out of it., In this poem, Billy Collins , renowned writer and professor, describes the act of teaching poetry. He lists all the many ways he would like his students to look at poetry, and in the end expresses his frustration with their limited and narrow desire to find meaning in poetry.
The dramatic situation is Billy Collins is speaking I think to all readers about the way one should read poetry. The poem teaches the reader how to read and dive into a poem, using many literary devices and tone to do so. This squinting is what the speaker wants the reader to do — he wants the reader to get inside the poem and see what it means. After this, there is a shift in tone, now almost a taunting mood. He expresses that poems should not have their meaning forcefully tugged from them, but freely and calmly find it, and still be attached to the surface.
