Listen to poetry too!

poetryArchiveLogoHave you discovered The Poetry Archive yet?

This is a fantastic resource for lovers of poetry, or those who wish to explore and take their imagination to new landscapes.

On the site you can hear the voices of poets reading their own works, as well as access recordings via the guided tours that poets and celebrities have created from the archive.

What is Andrew Motion listening to in the files, what is Stephen Fry or Monica Ali? You can find out by visiting The Poetry Archive.

The site has some great resources for students, librarians and teachers. We particularly liked the New to Poetry pages – if you are just discovering poetry or are just becoming confident as a reader this is the section for you.

The Poetry Archive also has a section dedicated to children’s poetry. It can be really surprising to hear some of your favourites in the voice of the poet, changing the way you think about the work by hearing it spoken as the poet imagined it.

This is a great resource – visit The Poetry Archive here and be surprised…
