Hmm …

… Why Every Poet Uses “Poet Voice” : Niall O'Sullivan. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Maybe because I've done a lot of public speaking, but I try to read my poems much the same way as I would read anything else. It should be evident from the nature of the thing that it isn't a lecture or the like. I just want it to be understood. Philip Larkin seems to have read his poems in much the same way.
