Poetic Listening.
Brown, Merle
The poet always listens to himself or herself as part of the expressive act that is the poem, and that listening becomes an essential part of the completed poem. The listening is never fused into the expressiveness of the poem's making, however, but continues in a dramatic relationship with that expressiveness. The difficulty of poetry stems from this dialectical and dramatic aspect of its nature. The need to attend to this poetic listening is illustrated in discussions of various selections, as is the need to learn to listen dramatically to oneself as one is reacting to a poem. (AA)
