Robert Browning Recites a Poem (Sort Of)

I found this video a while back while I was meandering around Youtube. If the uploader is to be trusted, it is a recording made in 1889 of Robert Browning trying to recite his poem “How They Brought the Good News from Ghent to Aix.” I say “trying” because after the third line, he completely forgets the poem and starts saying random things. Kind of funny, actually.
