Cruellest Month #30: Prospero’s Epilogue

Sir John Gielgud as Prospero from Prospero's Books

The final day of National Poetry Month 2011 and we end it with some Shakespeare. We have Prospero’s final lines, his epilogue, from The Tempest.

Thank you to everyone who listened and thanks to everyone on the staff who participated. I’m glad we gave this a second shot this year.

You can download it directly here and a unique feed is here. Enjoy.

Last year at this time we closed out with Dom reading Yeats: “The Second Coming.”
