Antique Poems Analysed

Antique Poems Analysed by Tom East and guests

     As the title suggests, this section takes out-of-copyright poems from earlier times and briefly 'analyses' them, in an informal way. You can also hear the poem being read, in the most part by the person analysing it.
     I am grateful to those named for their analyses, and for their readings, which you can read and hear by clicking the title of the poem below.
