An Archive for a Poet's Voice

Surreal, funny, difficult: John Ashbery has also been called one of the greatest living American poets. But have you heard him read his poetry? Over at UbuWeb Sound, you can listen to dozens of recordings of Ashbery reading his work, from 1963 to 2009. If Ashbery doesn’t strike your fancy, maybe you should get a new fancy. Or you could listen to Jack Kerouac, or monologist Spalding Gray, or poet, novelist, and all-around champion of avant-garde awesomeness Gertrude Stein. Just pick something already.
