Podcasts and CDs

Not to take the momentum away from Hughes' "Last Letter"... but there are two pieces of informatin to pass along today...

  • For those unavailable to attend the recent Ted Hughes Conference at Cambridge, a podcast has been made available of a conversation between Carol Hughes, Daniel Huws, and Richard Hollis. With them as chair moderator is Colin Wilcockson.

  • Published today are two mega compilation CD's by the British Library to coincide with National Poetry Day in England.

    The 3-CD compilation British Poets includes 30 poets from Tennyson and Browning in the late 19th century to Thom Gunn and Ted Hughes in the mid-20th century, reading from their own work, often with their own spoken introductions. The selection features historic recordings by poets laureate John Masefield, Cecil Day Lewis, and John Betjeman; unforgettable voices such as W H Auden, Edith Sitwell and Stevie Smith; and rare recordings by Philip Larkin, Edwin Morgan, and Ian Hamilton Finlay. Almost all of the recordings in this collection are published for the first time here.

    The 3-CD set American Poets includes recordings of 27 poets from Gertrude Stein (born in 1874) to Amiri Baraka (born in 1934). The 20th century was a time of enormous energy and variety in American poetry, embracing such eminent names as T S Eliot, E E Cummings, William Carlos Williams, Ezra Pound, Robinson Jeffers, Langston Hughes, Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath. The majority of the recordings have not been published before.

    Plath's poems are "Candles" and "Berck-Plage."
