How to read a poem?

Starting from kindergarten, and then - in elementary, middle and high schools, we learn a variety of poems included in the general education program. But if any child can memorize a verse, then it is far from everyone to read what has been learned beautifully. Why this happens and how to read a poem correctly, we will try to tell in this article.

Poet's soul

These verses are the soul of the poet revealed to us. In them, he puts his feelings, feelings (especially if it is - lyrics). Why do we often sadly talk about what should kindle hearts, awaken feelings, raise awareness of love and goodness, wisdom and tenderness? But often many people read poems without expression, ugly and tedious, tinkling to themselves. In the poem a large role is played by intonation content, diction, inspiration, passing the text through the prism of one's feelings. For information on what genres of versification exist, see the article How to determine the genre of a poem.

Some rules for reading poetry

  • Learn the text "on the teeth", so as not to be distracted and not to think: what line follows this, already told by you. Impeccable knowledge of the text helps to give more time and effort to the correct intonation of the verse.
  • It is necessary to work on diction. Agree that lisping pronunciation, burr, stuttering do not contribute to the proper perception of the work by the listener. Much depends on how you pronounce words, combine them into phrases, sentences, and fragments.
  • Observe the intonation punctuation marks. The point is a big pause. The comma is small. The exclamation mark implies an increase in intonation, ellipsis - a decline.
  • When reading art, delve into the meaning of the work as much as possible. Empathize to the author. It’s not for nothing that poems read by talented performers have the same high artistic value as the works voiced by the author himself.
  • You can not hurry. The presence of reasonable pauses makes reading the most expressive.
  • Highlight phrases intonation: ascending or descending. Having the reader musical ear greatly simplifies the task.Indeed, many poems are recited in a singing tone, as if imitating singing.
  • Work on facial expressions and gestures. They help to express something that is not yet expressed by the voice (you can exercise in front of a mirror).
