Re-animated Newbolt reads “Vitai Lampada”

Henry Newbolt was most famous as a poet, and his most famous poem was Vitaï Lampada (1892).  It plays on themes of duty via Cricket… seriously… it became ridiculously famous during WWI, to the point that Newbolt got sick of reciting it.

But do you want to see something creepy?

Poetryreincarnations animates photos of old poets with real audio to make pseudo-videos of them reading poetry.

So Newbolt is on YouTube… check out Vitaï Lampada: http://youtu.be/8oWiZsvhgjY
