Paul Muldoon on how to read poetry

I've seen Paul Muldoon read several times (and even had the honor of hosting him as a reader for the launch of Poetry in Person-skip to 45:00 for his bit) and each time I'm struck by how contagious his passion for poetry is.  It seems that his visit to Pearl London's class was no exception. In this clip he talks about how we all must learn to read poetry, and it makes me want to double the intensity, and the attention, that I bring to my reading.
