The History of English Poetry in 8 Poems

Posted in Poetry, and Shakespeare

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 ‘Hi’. I’d love to know what you think.


And, in case that link doesn’t work, here’s another.
