Poetry Explained - How Personal experience and Background Knowledge Help us Make Sense of Poetry - Ezra Pund
         STRĂTEANU Anca


When reading literary texts, we have to be aware of the fact that each reader of a certain text will get a different meaning out of it. It is a nonsense to ask of readers to get the exact same meaning because we cannot possibly know what the author had in mind when he wrote the text and we make sense of everything, especially poetry, through our own personal life experience. Meaning ”occurs within and by means of complex systems of codes derived from and determined by human culture”. In order to understand a text, which is open, incomplete, insufficient, we have to make use of our imagination and background knowledge to decipher the codes. The reader’s task is ”to draw out of the work the full complexity of meanings pre-packaged within it”. Thus the emphasis of poetics shifts from the ”work of art” to the ”work of interpretation” which creates the poem from the poem’s primary material. The reader’s imagination has to fill in the gaps in the text the author left for us, gaps which wait to be filled with meaning and which make us, the readers, become active and creative agents of deciphering codes. Once put on paper, ”the work of art never comes to rest”. With every reading, a new meaning will be found. With every reader, a range of new meanings will be found. But even more so, with every new reading by the same reader, especially over years, new meanings will be found. How does this happen? you might ask. Through life experience and background knowledge.

The first part provides an analysis of the concept of culture: the one related with the academic meaning of the word, which expresses the level of a society’s evolution regarding literature, music, and painting, i.e. artistic and intellectual expressions of a society. In addition, this concept includes the anthropological perspective which encompasses the way of life, customs, traditions, beliefs, mindsets, principles, as well as abilities that the individual and the community in which he lives have developed. Further on, an analysis is provided of the concept of culture in glottodidactics and its importance in the program of studying a foreign language.    

The second part highlights the importance of learning culture and civilization in the foreign language classroom; this is a major task which every teacher and instructor should pay close attention to: when learning a foreign language it not only necessary to acquire knowledge of its morphology and syntax, but also to study aspects of culture and civilization. In order to optimally achieve this, the teacher can use different methods to analyze cultural differences; for example comparisons, simulations, newspapers, media and the classroom too. 
The third part focuses on the importance of authentic material as this material originally reflects the culture in a particular moment and context. In this way, by the use of this material, the teacher provides students with a way of understanding situations and foreigners’ behavior, in this case the persons who represent the culture and the language being learnt. New technology, such as video and internet, is very good sources of authentic material. Internet is particularly a mere environment where students can interact in order to improve their communicative competences and where they can discover the culture of the language which they are learning.
