Eighteenth-Century Audio is a source for audio recordings of Restoration and eighteenth-century poetry in English. It is hosted at the University of Mary Washington, in Virginia, and much of the work on the site has been done by UMW students working under the direction of Dr. Marie E. McAllister. We welcome you to the wonderful world of poetry written between 1660-1800.
