when you have a book of poetry do you read it from front to back? do you skip around a lot?
do you think about and interpret the meaning? do you read certain lines over and over analyzing the metaphor? do you just sort of skim and feel it like music? do you visualize anything? do you pay attention to the sound and cadence of the words as though they were said aloud? do you read it out loud? is it important to know what the artist was trying to convey? is your personal interpretation more important? should it be like an "interpretation," and mental, or should it be more like a feeling?
