WebQuest.Org: Home Index English Vocabulary Exercises GrammarNet Poetry Day: 10 British Actors Read 10 British Poems Today is National Poetry Day (October 2) in the UK, and the Brits have always done pretty well at providing the world with poems and people who are good at reading poems, here are 10 poetic moments, provided by some of our favorite actors and actresses. Starting with Benedict Cumberbatch reading “Ode to a Nightingale” by John Keats: And, getting our Anglophenia big two out of the way early, here’s Tom Hiddleston reading W.H. Auden’s “As I Walked Out One Evening,” which uses the folk ballad tradition to draw comparisons between the streets of a city and the fields of the country, with the city clock reminding one and all that natures cycles of birth and death are never too far away: While we’re out for a stroll, here’s Jeremy Irons reading “Daffodils” by William Wordsworth. Which leads us neatly, into the First World War poets, such as Wilfred Owen. Owen was greatly influenced by Siegfried Sassoon, as a poet and a fellow soldier. And finally, a rare treat.

Poetry has come to play a large part in the way Doctor Who tells a story. If, for example, you wish to add an unsettling undercurrent to a cozy situation, why not have some children recited an eerily specific poem in a spooky way? Or sing a little song with dark lyrics? And if you want to suggest gravitas, simply throw in an apposite quote from some classic verse. Both approaches suggest that the events that are about to unfold were always going to unfold, because in the future (or the past, the Doctor gets about), they are already legendary. Here are as many examples as we could think of: “The Beast Below” A society that rides around on the back of a star whale will probably have its own nursery rhymes, and so it transpires for the remnants of England. A horse and a man above, below; One has a plan but two must go. And one at the end: In bed above we’re deep asleep, While greater love lies further deep. But that wasn’t the end of it.
