Hear rare recording from some of the world's most-respected poets reading their own works: J. R. R. Tolkien, "The Hoard"; e. e. Cummings, "Prose Jottings"; Archibald Macleish, "The Old Man To The Lizard"; Ted Hughes, "Six Young Men"; May Swenson, "Naked In Borneo"; Marilyn Hacker, "The Dark Twin"; Kenneth Patchen, "23rd Street Runs into Heaven"; Edith Stillwell, "An Old Woman"; and Theodore Roethke, "The Bat".

Ok, the recording quality isn’t great for some of these (sounding like a tape recorder in a lecture hall), but it is amazing to hear so many beloved poets reading their work. I feel it was definitely worth the price.
