Audible Editor Reviews

A graduate of the Old Vic Theatre School in Bristol, England, Jeremy Northam has played many roles, including that of Saint Thomas More in Showtime's The Tudors. The son of two professors, he is perfectly cast to read a poet whose best-loved works include "That Nature is a Heraclitean Fire and the comfort of the Resurrection." Difficult lines come trippingly off his tongue. This, for instance from "Windhover": "daylight's dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon . . ." There are 38 poems, each beautifully wrought.
