The Poetry Circle


‘The poet sifts within his thought pattern, giving
attention to subtle intimations of sound and rhythm,
which are somewhere far behind the jumble of words
with which his mind is filled.

In this way he creates a phrase that carries with it
a new force and the reader in turn can perceive his
own feelings being intensified as their energy is
transformed by the impressions he receives from
the poem.’

Peter Brook (Parabola, May 1996).
