To read a poem ...

'Learning to read a poem is not a matter of learning to pay attention to the repetition of linguistic forms, phonological, lexical, or syntactic. It is a matter of learning to hear what normally we must be deaf to; the inexhaustible ambiguity of utterances.' - James Thorne in The Taming of the Text (Routledge: London, 1991)
