I'm not too sure what the name of this page actually is but it has a great little timeline of the life and publications of the great poet.
A short life synopsis and the poem Snake with a Real Audio track.
Someone recently sent me email asking how to pronouce Roethke's name. I found this page which includes an audio file of the pronunciation. Note, that it includes a second pronunciation using the 'th' sound but does not provide an audio file for it.

Ted Tapia's Page
This was the only page devoted to Roethke when I put mine up back in 1996. He's got some good info here. UPDATE: This site seems to have gone 404, if you know where it has moved, please email me!
