Irina Moga : part four

How important is music to your poetry?

I think poetry, in its essence, is subliminal music – music hidden in the way we fit together sounds and meaning. And pauses. And rhythm – acceleration vs. deceleration, and so on. 

“Music first and foremost” is Paul Verlaine’s opening line in the poem “Poetic Art.”
