The writers speak

11th February 2000 at 00:00
Education so far has made little use of MP3. MP3 is a way of compressing sound files into more manageable sizes. This literature site has poetry, fiction and non fiction. You can listen to Dylan Thomas reading from A Child's Christmas in Wales, and TS Eliot readng The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. Hearing a poem read by its creator might give it a dimension that would otherwise go unnoticed for some students. Sylvia Plath, Toni Morrison, Bill Bryson and Nick Cave also feature.
