Q. How do I find a recording of a poet reading his or her own work?

Answer

We have lots of these!  There are a few strategies you might consider:

In the online catalog, do a keyword search on the poet's last name and limit your search to material type "Spoken Word Recording."

If the author of the work you're trying to find has a very common last name, try focusing your search by doing an author search on the poet's name in indirect order (last name, first name), then click on the "Limit and Sort Search" button and limit your search to material type "Spoken Word Recording."

To browse poetry recordings, do a subject search on "poetry," then click on the "Limit and Sort Search" button and limit your search to material type "Spoken Word Recording."

Using this method, you might encounter recordings of poets reading their own work OR other actors reading a poet's work.  Once you've found a recording that looks interesting, click on the "More Details" tab to find information about who is reading what work.
