Hearing authors read their works

Hearing authors read their works aloud is one of my favorite pleasures. Unfortunately, with so many of my favorite authors dead and buried, it's one in which I seldom indulge. A site like mp3lit.com could help me with this problem, except the navigation on the site is poor and it's difficult to locate ones favorite authors. When I clicked on Poetry, I was given a big page full of recommended authors, and it wasn't until the bottom that I found a link to "click here for more authors in poetry," which lead me to an alphabetical listing by author. While I appreciate their effort to expose me to fresh new voices, I really just wanted to find Auden, to find out if I could hear him reading one of my favorite poems, Musee des Beaux Arts. Sadly, it's not one they offer.
