One of the most important and poetic novels of the nineteenth century, this is also one of the best audiobooks I have encountered. Worth every penny.
I'm a big fan of Keats and this audiobook is the reason why - first purchased in the early nineties, I have listened to this incredible collection of poems hundreds of times - all the greats are here from Ode to a Nightengale, Ode to a Grecian Urn, Isabella, La Belle Damme sans Merci and Eve of St. Agnes - although the book is labelled "abridged," the only abridgement is Endymion - a must have for any lover of the romantic poets and Keats in particular - beautifully narrated, too
Keats is one of the greatest English poets and here is very well read. The title Selected Poems is a bit misleading, however, as the text consists of a handful of poems and the full text of his unfinished work Hyperion. Many many great Keats poems are missing. Still, a good book for a great price.
This is one of the best nineteenth century English novels and very well done but I really would have preferred a straight reading, without the silly voices
