see nerd) blog — classic poetry aloud

I found an interesting podcast in iTunes: classic poetry aloud.

The guy who recites this English language poetry is clear & precise, and sounds the poetic effect very well. I’m not always convinced by his emotional voice, but you can fill that in yourself. He’s got a very British accent, incidentally: Oxford, I think.

I recently found a recording of Yeats reciting, and he’s incredible. It’s on volume 1 of Poetry on Record, which I found enthralling.
