Microlectures and readings from English literature; by Michael Blackburn, writer, poet, retired lecturer. A traditional approach to the appreciation of literature. English Readings comprises two strands. The first is brief lectures/podcasts on specific texts or authors which may, I hope, prove of some interest to students and those with a love of English literature; the second is short readings of extracts from texts that may not be so well-known but which deserve a wider readership. These podcasts are also available on iTunes (also as EnglishReadings). If the literature and landscape of England is of interest to you please subscribe to this channel, and if you enjoyed some of these podcasts please consider making a donation.
