Hear Mike Wallace Read Robert Browning

By Harriet Staff

Head on over to Slate to hear Mike Wallace read Robert Browning’s “My Last Duchess.” A little about the occasion for his recitation:

Wallace took part in a Favorite Poem Project reading at New York’s Town Hall in April 1998. (His fellow readers included the dancer and choreographer Bill T. Jones, Geraldine Ferraro, and an adult literacy student.) Wallace reads the poem rather well, and mentions having memorized it when he was in high school. It isn’t hard to imagine the broadcasting eminence as a leading figure in the drama club.
