    Richard Burton reads from Hardy and Donne, and performs a wonderful unabridged version of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" (along with Robert Hardy and John Neville).

    Jamie Milton Freestone says: "A truly great voice reading some excellent poems"
    "Great Dissapointment!"

    What disappointed you about The Richard Burton Poetry Collection?

    Burton recites the poems just fine, but without stating the titles or crediting the poets' names. One has no idea what poem or from what poet he is reciting. Sometimes it is even difficult to be sure whether he has switched to a new poem or is simply pausing between chapters of the same poem. This is definitely a bad offering.


    Has The Richard Burton Poetry Collection turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Richard Burton?

    Burton is fine, but he omitted the title of each poem and neglected to give the poets credit.


    What character would you cut from The Richard Burton Poetry Collection?

    None. Who knows what poems were even offered!


    Any additional comments?

    This is so bad I would recommend Audible drop it from its selections. I feel that this particular collection was very carelessly produced. Shameful, actually.
