From the preface of Li Bai & Du Fu:
“When one memorizes a poem, it is no longer just a poem, but his or her poem. When reciting it, students can practice varying the sounds, adding pauses and emphases in different spots in searching for the most accurate articulation for the poem…. Memorizing and reciting poems is a great way to develop both a tenacious attention to detail and the essential literary skills that are key to critical thinking and unlocking the secrets of poetry.”
