Poetry Animations

Here's something cool, if slightly disturbing: a Youtube series of great poets "reincarnated" through animation. I've posted the Robert Frost movie, but you'll also find Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allan Poe, Byron, even John Donne. Here's the channel.

Yes, it seems a propos that Frost should be filmed reading this poem so late in life. However, I find it a little troubling, too, though why this is the case is a little unclear. Is it the fact that he seems so very old and nearly blind as he reads? Is it that he's reading the poem aloud at all, that it's better left on the page somehow? Again, I'm not sure.
