Great Poems by Matthew Arnold

I’m not sure why I am just discovering these amazing poems by Matthew Arnold, but better late than never. His poems are very good. I want more. In addition, Jonathan Keeble’s narration is so wonderful. He’s now one of my favorite narrators. I highly recommend this book to poetry lovers.
