The Outsiders Poetry Recital- Robert Frost- "Nothing Gold Can Stay"

Nothing gold can stay.

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

"Tell-tale Heart" Edgar Allan Poe

“Tell-Tale Heart”

We will be reading this classic short story in class and many of you have either already downloaded the audio version and some even downloaded it onto your iPod. COOL!

I found two interesting versions on the internet which might help build up our background information prior to reading.

View the following films of or dealing with the “Tell-Tale Heart”

Obviously the first one is an accurate depiction of Poe’s work as it incorporates a reading of the actual text.

Which media clip do you prefer, why? Which one would best help a reader to understand the actual story? (150 word min)
