after you’ve listened to two readings of the same poem, one by a performer and the other by the poet herself, below are two questions to answer:
1. What differences did you note between the two readings? Consider aspects of Sound in poetry, such as the tone of the reader’s voice, the rhythm at which they read, and the emphasis being placed on certain words and lines from the poem.
2. Between the two readings, which did you prefer and why? Remember, just because the poet reads the poem doesn’t mean that’s the definitive way to read it. Sometimes the voice of the poet won’t match what the poem is about or what the poem is trying to convey.
For each question your response should be 250 words, making a total of 500 words for this assignment.
