3 thoughts on “Writing Perspective using two voices

  1. You know I’m no poet but…I admit I was fascinated by this concept as I use it a lot in my own writing. But the implementation is a /lot/ easier in prose. To avoid ‘head hopping’ between perspectives, writers of prose assign either a chapter, a scene, or a paragraph to each character. I personally don’t like using paragraphs as I think they’re too short to allow the reader to recognize individual ‘voices’.

    I wonder if you could use readily recognizable structures in poetry to allow one, two or more voices to reflect on the same something?
