Russian Poetry and Prose

BU has a longstanding tradition of providing resources in specialized areas of language and literature to a growing audience. The Geddes collection in Russian Poetry and Prose is no exception, featuring readings by native speakers over the past five decades. In some cases the original author’s voice can be heard. We are pleased to now offer digital versions of selected titles from this collection that were previously only available on cassette or reel to reel tape. Online listening is available to the BU community by clicking here, or click a title below.
