Poets on Poets: Paschen and Fammeree

The Romantic Circles Poets on Poets audio archive publishes weekly MP3s--contemporary poets reading romantic poems. You can listen and download the files for use on your computer or iPod, and follow links to a brief biography of the reader and to the text of the poem he or she is reading. This week, we've posted Richard Fammerée reading Keats's "Ode on a Grecian Urn" and last week Elise Paschen reading "To Autumn" went online.
