About Recorded Poetry in the Library

The Library has a substantial collection of LP records.  This collection includes a wide variety of music, from classical to rock, but it also includes a large selection of spoken word recordings.

These spoken word recordings include both dramatic performances, such as plays by Shakespeare, and a collection of poetry, much of it recorded by the authors themselves.

If you've never really connected to poetry on the page, give the recordings a try!
