Brings Back Memories

Had to read this poem and discuss its meaning many years ago, like more than 50 that is. For some reason some of the verses came to mind(I am 75 now). Bought it in audio form and listened to it completely. Listening to it, I read it in one setting and I plan to listen to it again. I was able to gather the meaning a lot better. The audio was clear. I had no problems understanding the narrator. He was clear and his pronunciation distinct. Sure glad this poem is in my audio library.

much better read than narrator

I read this in high school and found it an interesting read then, though not particularly engaging

the narration allows me to relive it but the language doesn't keep my attention as do other simpler language or more modern language.

I would recommend reading it one time and listening a few times to fully digest all the intricacies

The narrator said penchant whereas the book said perchance, little things like that, it didn't fully match up with text

Not liked

Diction precise but very little expression. Some difficulty with archaic words compounded with regional accent
