Publisher's Summary

With more than 80 of the most popular and loved poems in the English language, this collection is one of the most comprehensive anthologies of its kind. It covers a remarkable range, from the striking visions of Blake and Shelley and the insights of Keats to lighter but equally memorable verse by Tennyson, Kipling, G.K. Chesterton and Edward Lear.

    "a nice collection with a flawed presentation"

    I enjoy listening to poetry reading while I am falling asleep. This a a good volume for this purpose and probably for whatever other purpose a poetry lover may want to put it to.
    I give it five stars for the narration because the narrations themselves were very good. However, I have the same complaint about this production that I have with many other audiobooks: a rushed feeling. Sometimes there is a nice musical interlude between readings. Other times there barely a second's pause between the end of one and the beginning of the next. I find this jarring and annoying. I would rather they put one fewer poem into the collection and allow a breath or two between each.
