Penn Sound – poets broadcast

phongraphPicThe University of Pennsylvania has a terrific archive of modern and contemporary poets available to hear on their PennSound pages.

Whether you are interested in hearing Paul Auster read from The Red Notebook from a few years ago, or to hear W.B. Yeats read The Lake Isle of Innisfree in 1932 – they are all here.

Across the whole A-Z of the catalogue there are some great and challenging recordings to be heard. Be confronted by Kathy Acker or mesmerised by the lilting musicality of Zhimin Li reading his Non-Presence works in his native tongue.

PennSound – a fantastic resource for lovers of poetry, history and the human voice.
