If I Knew What Poets Know James Whitcomb Riley

LibriVox volunteers bring you 23 recordings of If I knew What Poets Know by James Whitcomb Riley.

This was the Weekly Poetry project for July 5, 2020.

Riley's chief legacy was his influence in fostering the creation of a Midwestern cultural identity and his contributions to the Golden Age of Indiana Literature. With other writers of his era, he helped create a caricature of Midwesterners and formed a literary community that produced works rivaling the established eastern literati. There are many memorials dedicated to Riley, including the James Whitcomb Riley Hospital for Children. (Wikipedia)

Read by volunteer readers. Total running time: 00:27:49
