The third volume in the incredibly popular Audio Archive Anthology series features twenty-one poems read by some of the most influential poets of the twentieth century. Each track has been selected from the full-length readings in our Audio Archive catalog, and has been digitally remastered to restore the nuances of the author’s voice without altering the atmospheric tone of the original recording. The poetry selected for Anthology III ranges from the somber to the whimsical and the abstract to the palpable—a compilation as varied as the landscape of American poetry itself.
