Woodberry Poetry Room online

“This is Ted Berrigan reading today for the Poetry Room at the Lamont Library at Harvard College, Harvard University. And today’s date is August something or other. August 8th.” Online: selected recordings from Harvard University’s Woodberry Poetry Room. John Ashbery in 1951, a memorial service for Elizabeth Bishop, treasures galore. How amazing to hear, across so many years, what Robert Fitzgerald and Roman Jakobson sounded like. Copyright restrictions make some materials Harvard-only.

[And where’s T. S. Eliot?}
