How can I read one or two books of poetry every day? Am I reading superficially? Well, one reason is I don't watch television. Another is that I have tenure. Usually I am re-reading to some extent. Some books are short. Some, like the Simic, don't provide obstacles to quick reading. Sometimes I'm reading the book over two or three days. I know I won't be able to read Stubborn Grew in a single day, for example. Gould goes down slow. (Hey, that should be a blurb on his next book.)

You can read aloud to yourself the better part (or the worst part) of an average "slim volume of poetry" in an hour.
