Jorge Luis Borges - about poetry

Truly fine poetry must be read aloud. 
A good poem does not allow itself to be read in a low voice or silently. 
If we can read it silently, it is not a valid poem: a poem demands pronunciation. 
Poetry always remembers that it was an oral art before it was a written art.
 It remembers that it was first song.
Jorge Luis BOrges - Lecture entitled "The Divine Comedy," 1977
