The centerpiece of our annual Poetry Month celebration is the release of 50 newly digitized recordings to the Archive of Recorded Poetry and Literature—and we’re delighted to say that this year is no different! If you’re unfamiliar with the archive, here’s a little history: the Archive of Recorded Poetry and Literature dates back to 1943 and contains nearly 2,000 audio recordings of poets and writers participating in literary events at the Library of Congress, along with sessions recorded in the Recording Laboratory in the Library’s Jefferson Building.
