More Resources for Teaching Poetry

Link to: Poetry Archive

Gardner’s Donne A Day project demonstrated how podcasting could provide a new dimension to the study of poetry by archiving easily assessable MP3 recordings of the Renaissance poet. The Poetry Archive provides another resource as the “world’s premier online collection of recordings of poets reading their work.”

Try listening to Felix Dennis reading This is the server….

I found the Felix Dennis poem while looking to see if the archive included Carl Dennis reading one of my favorites, The God Who Loves You. Dennis read his poem in a segment by Elizabeth Farnsworth on the News Hour that was recorded when Practical Gods was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.

The reading of the poem starts 2:28 minutes into the audio of the interview.
