on reading poetry aloud for an audience

The Listening Booth


Let’s explore this! The first one I clicked on was Elizabeth Bishop, and got this message – “Due to copyright restrictions, this recording is available only to Harvard users. To access the recording, click here. A Harvard University ID number and PIN will be required.” WTF?

But many of the others seem to work just fine – more soon on this. Exciting!

  1. Oh my gosh! I’m loving it. I clicked on a number of them, and it appears that the Harvard-only recordings make up a kind of Dead Poets’ Society. The living poets I clicked so far are available to all. Thanks for the link.

  2. I’m thinking that the person who put together the archive had a Harvard-only account that clicked them automatically into the archives without requiring log-in. I can’t imagine why else they would have been included..

  3. I spent some time on this site yesterday and noted it for a forthcoming Saturday Sharing. Lots to explore, listen to, read there.
