    John Lithgow has compiled an outstanding collection of memorable poems and has gathered his famous friends to read them. The wide variety of carefully selected poetry in this audiobook provides the perfect introduction to reel in those who are new to poetry, and for poetry lovers to experience beloved verses in a fresh, vivid way. Lithgow offers insightful and sometimes poignant commentary to accompany each poem. His essential criterion is that "each poem's light shines more brightly when read aloud".

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Poets' Corner the most enjoyable?

    I have always loved poetry,and this collection was recommended to me.I am on my second
    run through and am transported once again by the mellifluous tones of John Lithgow and the terrific renditions of his chosen presenters.The eclectic choice of poems, surprise and delight.

    Most often the chosen poem is not the most recognisable by the poet,something a little
    off kilter to tease and encourage further exploration.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    John Lithgow is mesmerising,His perfect pitch,his beautiful diction,and his erudite introduction to each poet was entertaining as well as educational.
