William Carlos Williams Reads His Poetry (1954)

William Carlos Williams – doctor by day, poet by night, and certainly one of America’s finest. In this 1954 audio clip, we hear Williams reading his own poetry at the storied 92nd Street Y in New York City. Poems include: “A Sort of a Song,” “The Maneuver,” “Seafarer,” “The Three Graces,” “Paterson, Episode 17,” “The Descent” and “Fish.” The reads are now added to the Poetry section of our Free Audio Books Collection.

Poetry lovers take note: People Reading Poems is a very new web site where users can come to hear recordings of people reading poems they love, and also to share their own favorite poems. It’s all completely free and easy to use. If you have a free moment, pay it a visit and help the site grow.
