I was scrolling through my Twitter feed the other day when I ran across a tweet from Interesting Literature summarising the history of English Poetry in just 8 poems. I know, tall order right?
I was intrigued.
And as I read them it struck me as the perfect opportunity for some poetry reading!
So I read them. And recorded them. And here they are in a Soundcloud Playlist. Hop over, have a listen and say â€˜Hiâ€™. Iâ€™d love to know what you think.
And, in case that link doesn’t work, here’s another.
