Tips for Reading Poetry

Reading Poetry

*  Re: punctuation

Many new readers tend to stop automatically at the end of line. This often interrupts the natural phrasing of a poem especially if you are reading Shakespearean Sonnets. So listen for natural pauses, but don’t assume each line requires an end pause.

Happy Reading!!
