It’s that time of year once again: Poetry Out Loud season. While poetry is oftentimes an underappreciated and unfamiliar form of literature, Poetry Out Loud attempts to bring the beauty of poetry to light by having students pick a poem, memorize it, and then recite it in front of their peers. How do the Spartans feel about Poetry Out Loud?

Josiah Debruno

Sophomore, Josiah Debruno, was the only interviewed Spartan to respond positively about Poetry Out Loud saying it helps him express his emotions.

Devon Vauclin

Devon Vauclin does not enjoy Poetry Out Loud because it “messes with my soul in a way I don’t like.”

Alexx Asencio

Dreading the part of the year where Poetry Out Loud is the focus of her English class, Alexx Asencio suggests a Poetry Out Loud club be formed instead of making the entire student body participate in the event.

Amanda Stefoni

Amanda Stefoni is not a fan of Poetry Out Loud and feels it is unnecessary. She believes students should not be required to participate since not everyone enjoys it.

Genaro Lozano
