Poetry Archive

I loved a story a colleague told me about his time in a wee post-mining village in Ayrshire... The type of place you could only belong to if you were born there. He told me of the chaps he'd have a quiet drink with - real burly, hardy bears... who loved their poetry... I thought this was funny - the juxtaposition of being so hard and heavy, and yet being so into poetry that they performed their own!!!

Anyway, this is a pretty good resource if you are into poetry... regardless whether you are a bear or not ::
The Poetry Archive is the world's premier online collection of recordings of poets reading their work.

You can enjoy listening here, free of charge, to the voices of contemporary English-language poets and of poets from the past. The Archive is growing all the time. Please come back regularly to enjoy our latest recordings.

Hope we see Gerard Kelly on there sometime!?!
