➕BEST CELEBRITY READINGS OF POETRY➕ (OPEN LIST)

@hannahstark posted a list regarding Benedict Cumberbatch reading Kafka. It inspired me to share this website that aggregates celebrity readings of poetry: speakcelebrity.tumblr.com. My favorites are listed below; add yours (especially if they can help me discover similar sites!).
  1. Benedict Cumberbatch, Ode to a Nightingale by John Keats
    Listen to his subtle differentiations of the "oh" stanzas.
  2. Judi Dench, How Do I Love Thee by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
    There's nothing like a dame.
  3. Glenn Close, I Like for You To Be Still by Pablo Neruda
    Her reading of the word "melancholy" and her gentle urging in "let me talk to you with your silence" are mini-master classes.
  4. Kenneth Branagh, To a Stranger by Walt Whitman
    NSFW
  5. Tilda Swinton, Like This by Rumi
    The perfect intersection of her eccentricity, intensity, and considerable talents as an actress
  6. Fiona Shaw / The Wasteland
    I think you can only see the whole thing in the iPad app here: http://bit.ly/1Eo7TzO but you can watch part one here: http://bit.ly/1IPS64v
