Woodberry Poetry Room Play

The word "vocarium" was coined by Harvard Professor Frederick C. Packard Jr. to suggest "a place where recordings of voices are kept and used for study and enjoyment." Under the Harvard Vocarium record label, Packard recorded some of the foremost poets of his time, including T.S. Eliot, Elizabeth Bishop, Robert Lowell, Ezra Pound and Marianne Moore. Our online Vocarium honors and revives this creative vision for the 21st century by sharing new projects emerging from the Woodberry Poetry Room, including oral histories, recording sessions, podcasts and multidisciplinary installations.
