WHY?

Sam Stinson's recitation of Blake's 'Songs' has the emotive appeal of an automaton. Don't buy..

awful and inappropriate narration

the sublime Blake, England's spiritual soul, rendered by an american with the.most appalling accent and intonation I have ever heard. please, please, do not buy. audible should ensure buyers know the nationality of narrators. i resent paying money for something where the contract is not elicit, particularly when the product is 100% audio. selling under false pretenses.

Poorly narrated - not recommended.

The narrator does not do these beautiful poems justice. The voice is inappropriate for classical poetry. Also, one poem per chapter does not need to be conveyed to the listener. The announcement of each chapter, followed by the title of the poem breaks up the flow from one poem to the next. The title of each poem is sufficient.
