Close Minded Perceptions of Poetry

In light of our discussion over the last few days, I wanted to bring our attention to a statement that Nicco made about hearing a spoken word piece as a monologue  in a movie. I was talking to Julia the other day & I interpreted his statement as if he felt that the presentation of that particular poem was more of an act than that of a way of self expression.


I want to know if anyone else felt like that. Are& slam poets putting on an act?
