Publisher's Summary

It is hard to top the pleasure of a woodland walk in Spring - unless of course you have a lyric poet as your guide. Now that is possible with Poets of Nature. Let Walt Whitman, John Keats, Emily Dickinson, Henry David Thoreau, Emily Bronte, and Ralph Waldo Emerson take you into that realm of Nature "where we seldom wander". Drawing upon the treasury of classical poetry, Poets of Nature explores the deep green paths of nature with some of the world's most distinguished poets.

This audio seeks to guide us back from the confines of a human constructed world to one that we are more at home and in harmony with.

    "Superb for relaxation!"

    I was so surprised this collection served a dual purpose - not only by providing a beautiful collection of poems to listen to by an exceptional group of readers, but it also is extremely relaxing, having the capability of virtually transporting you to another time and place. Highly recommend it!

    Story
    "Like a symphony during a hike in the woods"
    What did you love best about Poets of Nature?

    I love the outdoors but can't always get away - these audio poems are a similar experience and can be listened to over and over


    Any additional comments?

    Some of the female voices were too breathy/overly dramatic for me, but overall I feel I couldn't have made a better choice

    Story
    "Natrual Love"
    Where does Poets of Nature rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the middle somewhere.


    What other book might you compare Poets of Nature to and why?

    Walden by Thoreau because it was about nature and admiring it/worshiping it by means of art.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was a very reflective sort of mood. I listened to it while walking in nature so it complemented the event.

    "Music and prose make for a beautiful experience"
    Would you listen to Poets of Nature again? Why?

    Varied and interesting poems from past to present.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This was a collection of poems, the question isn't a good fit is it amazon?


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?
