I think a whole lot of people would be much more interested in lit if we got more wonderful people to do more poetry readings. I don't even really LIKE e.e. cummings, subject of the first reading, but the reading is remarkable. Reading is a performing art, all right. Let's start, shall we?
"May I Feel" by e.e. cummings, read by Tom Hiddleston
Oh, ignore the fluttering images on the video, which was clearly done by a fangirl. Look elsewhere and focus on the auditory. Good poetry is a treat for the ears as well as the mind.
"Ozymandias" by Percy Bysshe Shelley, read by Bryan Cranston
Sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare, read by David Tennant
