A history of poetry performance in the UK

40 years of British poetry under a virtual roof.

"This sample of British poetry readings...reveals a diverse range of voicing styles, which make distinct use of cadence, intonation and pace - acoustic devices which can develop or even transform the semantics of a poem."

Highlights in this archive hosted by the University of Southampton include:

  • Hugh MacDiarmid
  • Jackie Kay (go and see her live too)
  • Attila the Stockbroker
  • Patience Agbabi
