1 hour


LibriVox volunteers bring you 23 recordings of The Owl Critic by James T. Fields. This was the Fortnightly Poetry project for April 3, 2011.

James Thomas Fields (December 31, 1817 – April 24, 1881) was an American publisher, editor, and poet. At the age of 14, Fields took a job at the Old Corner Bookstore in Boston. His first published poetry was included in the Portsmouth Journal in 1837 but he drew more attention when, on September 13, 1838, he delivered his "Anniversary Poem" to the Boston Mercantile Library Association.
