"Lyric’s capacity to remake personhood is thus founded on the reader’s experience—the experience of overhearing. But note: this experience is fictional. We do not actually overhear anyone. We are actually reading an artfully composed artifact, and we know this. But we pretend we overhear, and our experience of the poem is framed by this pretense." Michael Clune, Paul Grimstad, Virginia Jackson, Simon Jarvis, Aaron Kunin, and Geoffrey G. O’Brien respond to Oren Izenberg •
