阿德里安·米切尔(Adrian Mitchell)名言

Most people ignore most poetry because most poetry ignores most people.

大多数人忽略了大多数诗歌,因为大多数诗歌忽略了大多数人。

阿德里安·米切尔

Written poetry is different. Best thing is to see it in performance first, then read it. Performance is more provocative.

写诗是不同的。最好的办法是先在表演中看到它,然后再阅读它。表演更具挑衅性。

阿德里安·米切尔

I don't like writing essays or theory.

阿德里安·米切尔

I want to speak, to sing to total strangers. It's my way of talking to the world.

我想和陌生人说话,唱歌。这是我和世界说话的方式。

阿德里安·米切尔

Stadium rock and commercial rock are the opposite of what poetry needs. An audience of around 200 is ideal for poetry.

体育场摇滚乐和商业摇滚乐恰恰相反。200人左右的听众是写诗的理想对象。

阿德里安·米切尔

There have always been poets who performed. Blake sang his Songs of Innocence and Experience to parties of friends.

总有诗人表演过。布莱克向朋友们唱了他的清白和经验歌。

阿德里安·米切尔

I use rock and jazz and blues rhythms because I love that music. I hope my poetry has a relationship with good-time rock'n roll.

我用摇滚、爵士乐和布鲁斯的节奏,因为我喜欢这种音乐。我希望我的诗和摇滚乐有关系。

阿德里安·米切尔

I use the language I use to my friends. They wouldn't believe me if I used some high-flown literary language. I want them to believe me.

我用我对朋友说的语言。如果我用一些高调的文学语言,他们不会相信我的。我希望他们相信我。
