124 Recordings of Famous Poets Reading Some of Their Poems

At the beginning of this month I shared five good resources for National Poetry Month. The Library of Congress recently released a new online archive about poetry.

The Archive of Recorded Poetry and Literature contains 124 recordings of writers reading some of their poems and other works. Many of the recordings are long (one hour+) interviews with the writers during which they read some of their works. The audio can be heard on the LOC website and or embedded into blog posts as I've done here. Below you will find the recordings of Ray Bradbury and Robert Frost.
