This is the editorial introduction to a special issue of the open access journal Amodern (issue number 4) on "The Poetry Series", that uses an archive of sound recordings documenting "The Sir George Williams Poetry Series" as a case study for critical analysis of literary reading series. This issue and its individual contributions use "The Poetry Series" as a touchstone for different modes and avenues of critical literary, media and historical analysis. This introductory essay forwards arguments about "Discovery, Transformation and Transcription", "Historiography, Criticism and the Digital Condition", and articulates the concept of "Audiography", a form of bibliographical criticism and sociology of the audiotext.
