An index to my favourite lines of verse on video (and why I like them)

Woman Reading by Candlelight, Peter Ilsted
A great poem can say just as much in a few simple lines of rhyming verse as several volumes of wordy philosophy. My all-time favourites are presented here in video format - with each recital accompanied by its own dedicated page of notes. These include a brief biography of the writer, a background summary to the poem, and a glimpse into themes and interpretation.
