"Thou Map of Woe, That Dost Talk in Signs": The Speaker-Listener Dialogue of Poetry and the Practice of Selecting Poems for Poetry Therapy.
Reed, M. Ann
Journal of Poetry Therapy, v13 n1 p17-28 Fall 1999
Argues that Lavinia of "Titus Andronicus" is Shakespeare's metaphor for the wounds of division between spoken and written word, who talks in signs, and is both poet and agent of healing: the poem's capacity to sustain the passion of rapture and its capacity to shape a house of consciousness for the particular movement within the psychodynamic action at large.
