Share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good. While you are at it, forward it to your kids, so they will know how brave and lucky their parents were.

Poetry By Heart

Poetry By Heart | Sizzlin' News |
What Andrew Motion saysThank you

…for joining us in the very first Poetry By Heart competition, which I hope you’ll think, as we do, is a momentous thing in its way: a pioneering national competition designed to encourage pupils at school and college in England to learn and to recite poems by heart.  Not in an arm-waving, props-supported thespian extravaganza, but as the outward and audible manifestation of an inwardly-understood and enjoyed poem.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Sharla Shults's insight:

"Poetry By Heart is designed to put the emphasis on learning by heart, not on learning by rote.  It is about understanding and remembering the deep recurring truths about our experience as humans, in terms that are especially beautiful and resonant.  It is about doing this in a pleasure-filled way.  And it is part of the same benevolent revolution in poetry-proving and poetry-teaching that formed a part of the original intention in founding the Poetry Archive  during my ten years as Poet Laureate." ~Andrew Motion

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 4, 2013 2:51 PM

Poetry evokes both the creative and the radical. We can express what we feel in a deep and meaningful manner.
