As an introduction to our recommendations of Cultural Works,
Poetry to be Heard,
We would like to make a few general observations:
About Poetry, Listen to It
About Books, Read Them
About Art, View It and Communicate with It
About Music, Immerse Yourself in It
About Dance, Experience It
About Theatre, Film and Video, Absorb It
Not just these bare few items on our list, but All of it.
Beyond that, we submit the notion that it is a good thing to expose yourself to Ideas outside your normal framework. Indeed such activities may be the ultimate Growth Tool. We're not recommending total agreement with all or any of these Works. Certainly it would be impossible to agree totally with all of them, they represent too many Currents of Thought in the vast Ocean of Human Consciousness. But you can't Strengthen anything without subjecting it to Exercise, or Stimulation.
