I really think it needs some recordings for "whomever" is in the woodshed of things that would really make them crazy. That is, classical music who really, really loves head-banger kinds of stuff, etc. Poetry readings would come under the same heading. I'm particularly happy with William Cullen Bryant's Thanaptopsis
. It's especially good to have the "victim," I mean student, memorize. One can never get too much culture.
IMO The Raven
is soooo overdone.
