Description

Great poetry read aloud by great actors


‘Poetry, this trinity of sound, sense and sensibility, gives voice to experience in the way that no other art form can’ Josephine Hart

The Josephine Hart Poetry Foundation has developed a free app, allowing users to read their favourite poetry collections alongside performances and narrations by great actors.

The Poetry App was originally designed for the late author and poetry enthusiast, Josephine Hart. It is now being constantly updated to ensure that all the readings surrounding her infamous Poetry Hours will be available to view.

The Poetry App will draw you into a parallel universe of over one hundred poems from sixteen of the greatest poets of all time. The poetry is accompanied by video and audio narrations from over thirty world-class actors and performers.

The Poetry App was designed for students, teachers, poetry lovers and poetry novices – everyone should be given the chance to enjoy great poetry read aloud.

Read introductions and essays for each poet, beautifully written by Josephine Hart. Her knowledge of poetry and passion for verse makes this feature an ideal educational tool for anyone and everyone wanting to dive into the enchanting world of poetry.

Are you a poet? Do you fancy creating your own poetry? Write poems, save them into your very own library, and share your creations with your friends. If you get stuck along the way, The Poetry App can supply you with inspirational words from all your favourite poets.

‘Poetry, once it entered my mind, surfaced at times of need and became a lifeline’ Josephine Hart

Customer Reviews

We poetry lovers need some help

This app means well and I certainly wish it well, but it needs some work to make it more easily navigable. I can't figure out how to sail this ship away from shore. For the most part, it just sits at the dock with the promise of a fine day for sailing.
Please work on it. It's a lovely idea.
