Free Poems from the English Romantics

Saturday, January 21st, 2006

The BBC is starting a new series on BBC2 tonight about The Romantics:

World changing events in the late 18th century – from the French Revolution via American Independence – instigated a new movement in the art, literature and thinking of Britain: The Romantics.

Over on the site you can download a selection of MP3s of well-known poems, so if you’re in the mood for a bit of English Romantacism (and if a cold January night isn’t as good a time as any I don’t know when is*) get downloading now!

They’re excellent quality, as you’d expect from the Beeb.

(*If you’re in the southern hemisphere that should read ‘balmy January night’…)
