Poetry Archive

The Poetry Archive is a treasure-trove of English-language poets reading their own work.


- are historic recordings,
- have been made specially for the Archive
...which means its range is the widest possible


The link takes you to a webpage where you'll find information about who to look for in the Archive, and how to find them, as well as information about how to discover - by theme or region or guided tour - poets whose work learners and practitioners alike, may not yet know.

Find rhyming words with the Online Rhyming Dictionary
John Dalziel's insight:

Apart from its obvious uses, when it’s time for learners, to reflect, one option could be for them to make their response(s) rhyme;  Rhymer, a FREE Rhyming Dictionary could help them with such a task; before sharing responses with partners or groups.
