Poem of the Day Podcast

August 26, 2010

Learn Out Loud is a really brilliant resource. Once you sign up (don’t worry, it’s free), you have access to this vast archive of audio and visual media. The feature that will probably be the most useful to us is the Poem of the Day Podcast. Many contemporary poets have been featured over the last few weeks, Adrienne Rich, Mary Oliver, & Carl Sandburg among them. You have the option to stream the audio online or download it as an MP3 to your iTunes. I am not certain if all of the poems are read by the poets themselves, but the ones I have listened to are; I imagine that the Lord Byron poems were probably not read by him, though. Below is a link to an Elizabeth Bishop poem:
