    "Enlightening and Entertaining"
    Where does Heaven in a Wild Flower rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed this book very much. Potkay skillfully balances poetic analysis with the fascinating lives of these seven poets. His narrative held my attention from beginning to end and refreshed my memory of and fondness for the Romantic poets.


    What other book might you compare Heaven in a Wild Flower to and why?

    I've enjoyed most of the Modern Scholar audio books, but Professor Potkay does a particularly nice job. This series is excellent; the topics are interesting and well-presented. The narratives are accessible to the general reader without ever being condescending.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book. Don't be intimidated; extensive prior knowledge of the Romantics is unnecessary to understand and enjoy it. Even if you aren't sure you love Romantic poetry, you'll still love this book.
