Read by LibriVox Volunteers

This is a collection of 31 poems read by LibriVox volunteers for December 2016.

It also includes a long poem, The Legend of Jubal by George Eliot

"And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ."
- Genesis 4:21

Re-imagined from a few bare lines in Genesis, George Eliot’s epic poem describes man’s loss of innocense, the birth of animal husbandry, of industry, commerce, and art. In a surprise ending, she tells of human transcendence. Each of us has a divine gift to offer the world. (Summary by Josh Mitteldorf)
