An Animated Introduction to Virginia Woolf

Industrialization did not faze her. It’s less clear how the great observer of “the Modern Age” would’ve responded to the proliferation of Mommy bloggers. Their sheer numbers suggest that perhaps female writers do not need a “room of one’s own” (though presumably all of them would be in favor of such a development.) Woolf’s name is an enduring one, inspiring both the title of a classic American play and a doggy day care facility. Its owner passed away nearly 75 years ago, yet she remains a perennial on Women’s Studies’ syllabi.

Ergo, it’s possible for the general public to know of her, without knowing much of anything about her and her work. Arrange whatever pieces come your way. – Virginia Woolf. Archive of Recorded Poetry and Literature. Listen to audio-recorded readings of former Consultants in Poetry Elizabeth Bishop, Gwendolyn Brooks and Robert Frost; Nobel Laureates Mario Vargas Llosa and Czeslaw Milosz, and renowned writers such as Ray Bradbury, Margaret Atwood, and Kurt Vonnegut read from their work at the Library of Congress.

Archive of Recorded Poetry and Literature

The Archive of Recorded Poetry and Literature at the Library of Congress dates back to 1943, when Allen Tate was Consultant in Poetry. It contains nearly two thousand recordings—of poets and prose writers participating in literary events at the Library’s Capitol Hill campus as well as sessions at the Library’s Recording Laboratory. Most of these recordings are captured on magnetic tape reels, and only accessible at the Library itself. In digitizing the archive and presenting it online, the Library hopes to greatly broaden its use and value.

Digital Poets! Web Tools, Apps, & Lesson Ideas

Poems can help students see what they consider a boring or tedious topic in a different light.
