Brilliantly cast readers
My 3-year old son has me playing Billy Connolly's Owl & the Pussy Cat over and over, while my students were riveted by the Cavalier poet as we studied the English Civil Wars in history class.
The casting is superb. Gary Sinise gives, of course, a genius, understated reading. Morgan Freeman's We Real Cool absolutely captures the language and purpose of these deceptively simple words (although, he could read a Take Out menu and sound exquisite). And the ladies - Kathy Bates, Helen Miren, Jody Foster...
I fell in love with poetry again, having remembered that it is meant to be read aloud, not studied and deconstructed in a classroom. It has changed the way I teach.
An ideal Christmas gift for all the teachers in your life.
