Win 'Poetry On Record' CD Box-Sets ... TODAY!
Shout! Factory enters the literary world with the release of a four-disc deluxe audio boxed set, Poetry On Record: 98 Poets Read Their Work (1888 – 2006). Compiled by editor and author Rebekah Presson Mosby, this comprehensive set, complete with a 68 page color booklet, includes recordings of 128 poems read by the original authors, from a historic recording of “The Charge of the Light Brigade” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson to a recent reading by up-and-coming young poet Jonathan Lamfers.
“If there was ever a time when the world needed poetry,” Rebekah Presson Mosby explains, “this is it. Great poets take on all of life’s experience … reflect upon it, and consider its implication in our life and its effect on the human heart.” For centuries poets have commented on the human condition and its endless meanings. Just reading a poem can inspire laughter or tears, even anger.
Poetry On Record allows the listener to hear a poem read the way the poet intended, with the poet’s own reflection, intention and power behind every spoken word. Mosby draws upon poetry archives from all over the country to bring a cross section of unique voices in this comprehensive audio anthology, beginning with recordings made by Thomas Edison himself.
