Morning one and all!
I trust you’re having a great weekend thus far. I just came across this quote and wanted to share it with you; hope you like it!
“Two opposing forces inhabit the poem: one of elevation or up-rooting, which pulls the word from the language: the other of gravity, which makes it return. The poem is an original and unique creation, but it is also reading and recitation: participation. The poet creates it; the people, by recitation, re-create it. Poet and reader are two moments of a single reality.”
Beautifully true and very well put, wouldn’t you agree?
