"The reader reads aloud, with a sing-song up â€¦ then down â€¦ then down again cadence. My mood shifts from merely reluctant to derisive. Itâ€™s a tired reading style. Iâ€™m sick of it. It attaches more importance to the words than the words themselvesâ€”as theyâ€™ve been arrangedâ€”could possibly sustain, and it gives poets and poetry a bad name."
