IN MEMORIAM: Images of 115 of the many
great English language poets heard on this website
the music of American composer Roy Harris introduced by his daughter.
are seeing a slideshow, in
alphabetical order, of images of 115 of the many poets
represented on Eaglesweb.com. Here is a timed game: How many can you identify by last
name? The first is Addison
(four and a half seconds for each image).
What mental associations do you have with the poet's last name in that period of
time? Is one association his first name, Joseph? Is another The
Spacious Firmament on High? Is still another his playwright partner, Sir
Richard Steele? Are the third and fourth the English periodicals, The Tattler
and The Spectator?
After you have
seen all the images for the first time through, build your memory and knowledge of English
language lyrical poetry by interplaying this slideshow along with the anthology.
