This case study was carried out to investigate the challenges face by teachers in teachings poetry as well as the factors that contribute towards these challenges and to identjfying the suitable approaches that has been successfully applied by teachers in overcoming the challenges they faced in teaching poetry. Two instruments, namely semi-structured type of interview and classroom observation were used to collect data from the sample, which compromised of 10 teachers from Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Muara Tuang, Kota Semarahan, Sarawak. The finding significantly howed that the most prominent problem in poetry teaching in the ESL classroom was to get the students interested in poetry learning. Their interest diminishes once they cannot relate the poetry learnt with their prior knowledge and culture. The ituation become worst whenever words used in the poems were difficult to understand, therefore the lesson often resulted into boring poetry session The finding also revealed that even with inadequate knowledge about poetry, most of the re pondents interviewed work hard to get the students to understand the poems and get them interested in poetry learning .The evidence can be seen in the effort they put in to come up with variety of techniques to present the poetry lesson.
