    Story

    I own almost every poerty collection available from Audible and this collection was appealing in its variety both of authors and the poems selected. However, virtually every performance is over done, featuring either overacting, yelling, heavy breathing, and, perhaps worst of all, bad fake Irish, English, and Scottish accents. Save your money and look into some of the other collections available, such as the Best Poems of All Time (vol. 2 especially) and The Classic Hundred Poems.
