Do you have any? I'm just converting some of Larkin's readings from Youtube to go on, and I have the Hamlet speech from Withnail and I on.

Do you have much on yours? It's always seemed a strange thing to me, but I might change my mind, actually.

I think I would rather hold the book in my hands than on me i-pod.

Yes, but I like to hear poetry read by the author.

Particularly Philip Larkin :coma:

(That is a half-joke).

I don't always understand the attraction of listening to a poem over reading it or reading it aloud yourself but I do sometimes do this. Had a chapter of The Count of Monte Cristo (not a poem but...) and a couple from William Blake and Abse (as I was studying him). I don't read a lot of poetry but I'm committed to doing more in the future

Wow. That link is brilliant. You've now destroyed my good intentions of an evening of work in one fell swoop.

Because poetry is meant to be read aloud
