Spoken Word Performance

Precious Hunter-Smith at Meltdownment

‘Great lines are those whose words ‘have often a network of tentacular roots reaching down to the deepest terrors and desires’.  Thus, strangely, we recognise the sound often before we comprehend the meaning…The loss is incalculable. Increasingly our inner ear is failing and an entire sound archive, from which great poetry was not only created but appreciated and understood, is fading away.’  Josephine Hart Catching Life by the Throat pg4

Reading aloud brings the poems to life.  Some of my previous Concrete Poetry has demanded to be read aloud but in a different way to this.  Although that too needed to be read aloud to make any sense
