Wisely or no, this has pretty much been my haphazard method of reading poetry since I left formal study. With occasional blinding insight provided by some of the best writers on poetry, which is to say, its best readers.
‘There is no method but yourself, once you have read widely and deeply, opening yourself to the sounds and silences of the best poetry.’
