In the poem “London”, the way Jon many aspects like repetition, and rhyme are clearly had than when read on a sheet of paper or on the screen on the computer. The reading of this poem aloud makes words of the same meaning sound differently as by the tone of the voice that is some phrases read aloud and some of the going almost silent by speaking in a very low tone. Koch in his print out The Language of Poetry notes that, “in ordinary language the sound of a word is useful almost exclusively in order to identify it and to distinguish it from other words.

Poets think of how they want something to sound as much as they think of what they want to say and it is in fact impossible to distinguish one from the other…44”. Therefore, in the poem “London” while Jon reads the alliteration i.e. this repetition of initial sound and rhyme, the repetition of the final sounds are clearly heard that when reading silently. The low tone sounds calls on the attention of the audience to see the impact and the atmosphere created by fear during the war. In this poem an example rhyme is “every man; every ban” that is the sound of the last two letters of each word –an. Repetition is also clearly heard from the reading aloud by Jon and the listening becomes enjoyable, for instance, the word “every” is repeated to emphasize the points or the message in this poem.
Rhyme and meter in the poem as it is read by Jon Stallworthy are distinctively clear and they sound a different meaning that is with emphasis than when read on the screens and even by I reading it loudly. This means with all aspects used but with different readers or narrators reading makes a great difference. The tone of the voice as it dwindles low and glows high makes this poem sweet and the audience encouraged to request several repeats. These qualities affect a person’s understanding.
