These recordings are being made available as the result of a collaboration between US and UK poet laureates Donald Hall and Andrew Motion.  The recordings are preceded by a short biography of each poet and many of the actual recordings of each poet reading include comments by the poet about the poems.  So interesting!  And nothing like hearing the pronunciation and cadence from the voice of the mind that created the vision, painting of words.  Gertrude Stein, Gary Snyder, Adrienne Rich, Kenneth Rexroth, Lucille Clifton, Denise Levertov, Jane Kenyon, W.S. Merwin ... the list goes on - let one of these essential poets read to you in honor of National Poetry Month!
