Crazy Da Must Sing
INCLINED TO HIS WEAKER SIDE
of Liberation and Love”
The reading of poetry is a profound incident. It is Orphic in its nature.
It is a sacred incident for which both the reader and his or her audience must be prepared. All must be prepared to enter into it with such profound sympathy, emotion, loss of face – that true acting is required, true acting, not just a performance... investment of self in this incident to invoke in all the Condition contained in those words, possible in the frame of those words, you see.
It’s not just read, it’s a visitation, a spiritual incident... It should make the hair stand up on your neck, it should make the body shiver, it should break down your emotional defenses; it should relieve you of the social personality, you see?
