Does each generation represent William Shakespeare in its own way? April, National Poetry Month, includes the anniversaries of both Shakepeare's birth and death, and this year marks the 400th anniversary of his death.
National Poetry month, a month to celebrate poetry, is a perfect time to explore the Archive of Recorded Poetry and Literature. Some of the readings focus closely on the poems; others include musings on the selections and what inspired them. Some of the recordings are of a single poet, and others are panels or conversations between two or more poets. Hearing a poem in the poet's voice brings it to life in unexpected ways, and the range of poets offers something for all lovers of poetry.
On April 14, at 4 pm, ET, join staff from the Library of Congress for a free webinar outlining approaches and thinking processes for selecting primary sources to deepen student engagement and content knowledge.
