This proud nation with its long history - sometimes rough, hewn from bleak landscapes, and sometimes gently soft from its comforting voices - has produced a long succession of artists and poets.
In the latter category, Louis MacNeice most probably stands pre-eminent; his words and phrasing are on a plane few can equal and most are in awe of. But in this volume we do put forward others who have their own words and voice to add to this rich tapestry - Wilfred Owen, Henry Vaughan, George Herbert, and Edward Thomas amongst them.
Would you consider the audio edition of The Poetry of Wales to be better than the print version?
Poetry is always better read aloud!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, and it is a length that one could do it.
Any additional comments?
This collection of Welsh poetry has wonderful narrators. I liked the poem selection. For me, collections like this are great to listen to in the evening when I am winding down.
