Hundreds of people submitted recordings of Shakespeare, Wordsworth, and Roger McGough in an attempt to win a prize: Participation in the recording of this new poetry collection by Christina Hardyment, historian and audiobook reviewer for The Times.
This collection covers a wide range of classics by Shakespeare, Keats, Clare, Blake, and others, as well as modern poems by Roger McGough, among others. They are read mainly by the male and female first-prize winners, but also by the runners-up.

Outstanding! An Inspiring Collection!
I love Audible's books on Longfellow, Keats, and the Classic 100. But this one stands alone to me. Winters are long here, and this work is wonderful to listen to anywhere. The narrating is done very well, and you will come back to this recording again and again.
I write poetry myself, and I enjoy the well known authors and even the seldom heard works like "The Way of Wood" will appeal to any one who burns firewood, as it tells of the different uses and characteristics of different wood.
It is August, and I confess I've been listening to this one already...again.
