When you're done loading your iPod with Better than Ezra and Carlos Santana, why not try a little Ezra Pound or William Carlos Williams?
Recordings of the poets' works are available to the public through downloads on Penn-Sound, an online audio archive developed by professors at the University of Pennsylvania (www. writing.upenn.edu/pennsound).
PennSound is like iTunes for poetry - but each poem is free, said Charles Bernstein, an English professor and the site's co-director. "It's unprecedented within poetry," he said, calling it the "first and the biggest site of its kind."
Started more than two years ago, PennSound features about 200 writers and more than 10,000 recordings contributed by poets, fans and scholars. *
