Title: The Poet's Voice : A Digital Poetry Collection

URL: http://vc.lib.harvard.edu/vc/deliver/home?_collection=poetsvoice

Collection: A-Sites: Archived Harvard Websites

Description: The Woodberry Poetry Room, named in honor of Harvard alumnus and Professor George E. Woodberry (A.B., 1877), opened in 1931 in Widener Library for the purpose of bringing alive the poet's voice and creating a place at Harvard for the enduring delight and significance of poetry. The Poetry Room's archive of recorded poetry is widely acknowledged to be the largest in the world. Among its holdings are over 6,000 audio recordings from many sources in numerous formats. Approximately 3,300 of these are magnetic tape reels containing recordings specifically made by or for the Poetry Room at Harvard; some are original master recordings, and some are taped copies of material whose originals, in a variety of formats, have become damaged, fragile, or lost. From this group of 3,300 reels of tape a select number of recordings have been digitized and made accessible to the Harvard community and, when copyright restrictions permit, the general public. Collected by the Harvard University Archives as part of the records of the Woodberry Poetry Room.
