Abstract

Director points out that language has been somewhat sidelined by the modern emphasis on the importance of procedural non-verbal encounters. She recounts some clearly life-saving words she uttered to a very despairing patient. The review cites several literary critics commenting on the arousing, even exciting, effect of the inner rhythms contained in great poetry: the reviewer suggests that a related effect on the therapist’s voice may have added power and much-needed strength to the words themselves in this clinical situation.
