Step 2 — Dreams

Posted on: March 28th, 2012 by

Step #2 in our Poetry in Performance Process,

Let us examine “Dreams”, looking at its blue-print or structure, how it changes from beginning to end, the details or words that add to its progress, and the story the poem presents as it develops.

We will be careful during this initial step to avoid connotative interpretations. In other words, we will focus only on the poem’s surface appearance and the world it inspires within us.

Begin by imagining that you are in the poem “Dreams.”

You are not an addition to the poem; you are the poem’s consciousness, its being, its persona.

You are where that persona is

As you step into “Dreams”, it is crucial to remember first impressions.
