I Sing the Poem Electric

The website poemsoutloud.net collects audio and video performance of people performing their favorite poems. Robert Pinsky reads Emily Dickinson; Stanley Kunitz reads Gerard Manley Hopkins. But there are also submissions from ordinary folk, including a construction working from Massachusetts reading Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself” (here).
