A really useful website, this one.

Set up by the former Poet Laureate, Andrew Motion, it allows you to hear poets reading their own work. Sometimes this can shed new light on a poem’s meaning, causing us to pick up on sounds or images we might have overlooked had we just read it straight from the page.

Offering guided tours of poems by famous poets and celebrities, it really is a flipping marvellous resource. Have a look round when you have a moment!

That’s all for now.
