This book contains three CDs of poets reading their poems. The oldest recordings are of Alfred, Lord Tennyson reading The Charge of the Light Brigade in the 1880s. This collection includes the works of 47 poets, some very well known and some I had never heard of before. There is a short biography for each poet, what their work was about or which "movement" they were involved with, plus a few poems from each poet, not just those on the CDs. The best part was hearing the poets read their work - the rhythm they used, the words they stressed. Some of the poets spoke a bit before the reading of the poems. Recommended. ( )
  VioletBramble | Sep 20, 2011 |
This grand immersion in poetry follows the best-selling Poetry Speaks (2001) and includes a never-before-published and truly thrilling recording of James Joyce reading "Anna Livia Plurabelle" from Finnegans Wake. Book and CDs work beautifully together, kindling deeper appreciation for the transmuting power of poetry, a practice of discipline, skill, and magic.
