One of the oldest forms of literature, poetry has been used to retell historical epics, express heartfelt emotions about nature and people and even inject wit and humor into rhyme. The poetry spectrum is vast with topics, writers and meaning running the gambit.
For anyone who loves poetry or for folks who are interested in learning more about it The Poetry Archive is a wonderful place to start. The Poetry Archive is an online poetry portal that was created by 1999 UK Poet Laureate Sir Andrew Motion and recording producer Richard Carrington. Together these two individuals have worked to bring the English-language poetry into one site for everyone to enjoy.
What makes The Poetry Archive unique is that visitors can listen to poems being read by famous people and poets alike. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the large collection you can take a guided tour to help connect you with poems, poets and readers with the click of a button.
Apart from just listening online you can help support The Poetry Archive by building an online list of poetry audio tracks that can be saved and purchased too.
