Description

Poetic Places brings poetic depictions of places into the everyday world, helping you to encounter poems and literature in the locations described, accompanied by audiovisual materials drawn from archive collections.

The app is currently in its infancy and only features content for London but we hope to expand it to encompass places all over the world.

Utilising geolocation services and push notifications, Poetic Places can let you know when you stumble across a place depicted in verse. Alternatively, you can browse the poems and places as a source of inspiration without travelling.

Poetic Places aspires to give a renewed sense of place, to bring together writings and paintings and sounds to mean more than they do alone, and to bring literature into your everyday life in unexpected moments.

This app is the outcome of a collaborative project between the British Library and TIME/IMAGE, funded by CreativeWorks London. Visit our website at http://poeticplaces.uk to find out more about the project.

Ratings and Reviews

Only works for people in London I guess

The poetic and artistic places this app shows are amazing- in London. Unless you find yourself in that city, I guess there are no other options at the moment
