Stewart K. Lundy | Death of Self: Memorization | the the poetry blog

Poetry changes when you memorize it. Rather than being a subjective observer viewing an inanimate object, you enter the world of the poem when you memorize.

Memory is one of our most complex powers and is interconnected with our other senses. Memorizing actually brings a poem to life.
