Professionally polished. My current fall back I've enjoyed this weekly. My go to for a bite.
What a wonderful audio book. Some great poems, great narration and additional comments by Mr. Lithgow, and wonderful selection. It is great to listen to while driving, and being able to quote some poetry now and then is always a plus. (Even my three year old knows some of "To a mouse", and loves it)
Worth every penny. Superbly done. John Lithgow has presented an excellent compilation of poems, though some of your favorites may be missing. My only complaint: why would anyone cast Susan Sarandon to read Dylan Thomas's Do Not Go Gentle Into that Goodnight? Murdered it. It was like watching a friend die from behind a two-way mirror.
Like a great music cd, I go to this listen over and over again. The various voices,
(of pretty well known actors by the way) are so rich and interesting. The background
on each poet really informs the poetry read and makes it so inviting and alive.
John Lithgow has has created a work of joy here, and its such a pleasure to share his love of poetry.
I was expecting John Lithgow's lovely voice to read me some poetry as I fell asleep. Then when "the class" started, it caught me by surprise. I fell in love with the stories! I knew I liked poetry, and now I know why. Thank you, Mr Lithgow!
Having been away from the word I found myself searching for audio books to pull me in . This has done that and more. A scope covered that inspires me to explore life more fully. The most memmorable was the reading of Gertrude Steins portrait poem of Picasso. It reset my bored mind and made me laugh as I was visualizing Picasso animated by the words. Thank you
Being rather new to poetry (although 85) this book was a wonderful introduction to that world. Lithgow made each chapter a looked to adventure. My regret being Lithgow did not do all the readings. His readings seemed to be more vibrant and communicative than many of his guests. I strongly recommended the book to my homeschooling daughter as a delightful daily break for her class of three.
