The poetry archive

I confess that, since leaving school, I have read very little poetry because I find so much of it (especially modern work) so inaccessible.
However, sometimes it is easier to appreciate poetry when it is heard rather than read and I’ve been recommended to access The Poetry Archive which has a lot of poetry recordings.

    Yes, I’ve just found the Archive myself after watching Ian Hislop’s great programme on the history of the Poet Laureate. Some really good stuff for schools, which I’ll be using. Well done, Andrew Motion, even if you did find it all rather arduous ..
