Classic Poets Read in New eBook Series

The poems of Walt WhitmanAlfred Lord TennysonRobert BrowningW.B. Yeats, and soon Muriel Rukeyser and May Swenson are coming to life in a new line of enhanced poetry eBooks from Sourcebooks called Poetry Speaks 2Go.

eBookNewser has more about these new titles: “The $2.99 eBooks include biographies of the poets, an essay written by a contemporary poet and audio recordings of each of the poets reading their own work with a brief introduction by Peabody Award winner Charles Osgood.”

Here is more about the series from iTunes: “Poetry speaks to each of us at another level, below our consciousness. Like music, it reaches inside to touch us. While most of us first experience poetry read aloud as children, we almost never hear a poem once we’ve grown up. Yet spoken poetry can be a visceral, exhilarating experience. Poetry Speaks 2Go attempts to create (or perhaps recreate) that experience.”
