THE POETRY ARCHIVE



<img src="docs/dotgreen.gif"> "The Poetry Archive exists to help make poetry accessible, relevant and enjoyable to a wide audience. It came into being as a result of a meeting, in a recording studio, between Andrew Motion, soon after he became U.K. Poet Laureate in 1999, and the recording producer, Richard Carrington. They agreed about how enjoyable and illuminating it is to hear poets reading their work and about how regrettable it was that, even in the recent past, many important poets had not been properly recorded."

The site is aimed at students, teachers and librarians. A convenient search engine allows you to search for a poem or a poet. You can browse all poems by title, browse all poets by last name, browse poems by theme, and even browse poems by form.

A section of the Poetry Archive is devoted to poems for young children. Listen, for example, to this poem by Valérie Bloom: ["Time"]url:http://www.poetryarchive.org/childrensarchive/singlePoem.do?poemId=2810, or Go directly to the [Children's Poetry Archive]url:http://www.poetryarchive.org/childrensarchive/home.do, now.
