LibriVox volunteers bring you 8 recordings of The Old Year and The New by William Henry Rhodes. This was the Weekly Poetry project for December 28, 2017. Read in English by nighthawks; Algy Pug; Bruce Kachuk; Craig Franklin; David Lawrence; Garth Burton; Tomas Peter and; tovarisch. William Henry Rhodes will long be remembered by his contemporaries at the Bar of California as a man of rare genius, exemplary habits, high honor, and gentle manners, with wit and humor unexcelled. His writings are illumined by powerful fancy, scientific knowledge, and a reasoning power which gave to his most weird imaginations the similitude of truth and the apparel of facts. W.H.L.B. (from the In Memoriam of the book) For further information, including links to online text, reader information, RSS feeds, CD cover or other formats (if available), please go to the LibriVox catalog page for this recording.
