The Woodland Halló
LibriVox volunteers bring you 20 recordings of The Woodland Halló by Robert Bloomfield.
This was the Weekly Poetry project for March 21, 2021.
Robert Bloomfield was an English labouring-class poet, whose work is appreciated in the context of other self-educated writers, such as Stephen Duck, Mary Collier and John Clare. One of his early duties, when he was sent to London to work as a shoemaker, was to read the papers aloud while the others in the workshop were working, and he became particularly interested in the poetry section of The London Magazine. - Summary by Wikipedia
