PBS: Poetry Everywhere

Part of a plan to move poetry more firmly into the public sphere, the Poetry Everywhere project offers readings of sixteen poems and animated interpretations of a dozen others. Some poems are read by their authors; others are read by other poets. You'll find Emily Dickinson here, and Walt Whitman as well. You'll also find modern poets like Toi Derricotte and Billy Collins. All their readings are introduced by Garrison Keillor. Also, don't miss the Animated Poetry, accessed by the link at the bottom of the page. Each of them offers a visual as well as aural poetry interpretation.
