Interesting article

Post by Spazway » Wed May 09, 2007 3:44 pm

I came across this article on Yahoo a few minutes ago and decided to share it. Here is the link: http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/0705 ... pod_poetry

The University of Philadelphia is offering free recordings of contemporary poems, similar to what iTunes does for music. I think it's a great idea and will quite possibly bring poetry into the lives of more people, which is always a good idea. :mrgreen:

Very interesting ......... I think it would be very cool ...

.... makes me wish I was around in the days when poetry reading was considered rather hip and risque. I would have loved to have seen Dylan Thomas read his work .....

... thanks for the info .......

...jeanne...
... and his words purge up and outward,
expelled and onward through desert dust swallowed,
sands he says that gorge on simple sensibilities.
And, now he spits fragments, grit, extended vowels and elongated syllables
over cracked lips. Their sounds fall
piling round his boots…
