Overcoming the I-Don't-Know-Much-about-Poetry-but-I-Know-What-I-Like Syndrome.
Streepey, Janet Sisk
English Journal, v76 n2 p58-61 Feb 1987
Discusses the common beliefs that (1) understanding poetry is an individual act, (2) each person's understanding of a poem is equally valid, and (3) observers must superimpose meaning over nonmeaning. Argues that, unlike science and mathematics, there are any number of "right" answers in the interpretation of poetry. (JD)
