A Time Machine

In these extraordinary film clips an animation artist has manipulated still images – paintings and a photograph – so you can have the experience of Keats, William Blake, Walt Whitman reciting their poetry to you


  1. They certainly are impressive, but I must please add, in case others are as impressionable as I am, that they are not actual film clips of said authors!

    Film and motion pictures does not evolve until years later, and it is also clear, from a simple Google-search, that these films simply take and use a common portrait of the author.

    Excuse the nitpicking, I just wanted to add some clarity. The films are indeed an inspiring experience, so thank you!

  2. Oh these are fantastic!! My three favourite poets brought to life -what a treat! Thank you soooooo much for posting these Philip – I will watch and listen over and over! 🙂
