The Poetry Archive

If you'd like to listen to recordings of poets (mostly from the U.K.) reading their work, all in the comfort of your own home, Poetry Archive is the site for you. You can take a guided tour of the site, either with Andrew Motion, the British Poet Laureate, or with Jean Sprackland. You can browse the site on your own by last name of poet, by title, by theme (e.g. abroad, age, animals), or by form (e.g. anapestic, ballad, dialogue). You can also look at a list of all poems by title and all poets (by last name). There's even a section for those new to poetry.

This is a great site; I'm definitely going to go back to listen some more. Via Neat New Stuff On The Web.
