Narrative Verse, Volume 1 | [Oscar Wilde, Alfred Noyes, Samuel Taylor Coleridge]

Narrative Verse, Volume 1

Poetry can capture the imagination in a few short lines but narrative verse or poetry takes the form of telling a story whether it be simple or complex in a longer form. Among the most ancient forms of poetry it has widespread roots through almost every culture. In Volume 1 we bring you 'The Ballad of Reading Gaol' - Oscar Wilde; 'The Highwayman' - Alfred Noyes; and 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' - Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

    "More please"

    Narrative poems are not a popular genre today and some listeners may not be familiar with these works. But both readers give accompished and committed readings of these poems which make these audiobooks an ideal introduction to the pleasures of narrative verse.It is perhaps no surprise that such actors give fine accounts of The Ancient Mariner and The Pied Piper but such poems as Sohrab and Rustum - which had always seemed to me too calculated and deliberate in its effects-and The Prisoner of Chillon here also comes across as a passionate and gripping narrative.
    I have listened to the four volumes of Narrative Verse and recommend them all strongly.There are many other narrative poems worth exploring. More such poetry audiobooks please.
