However these Americans seem to like their poetry with a big slice of Ham. The poems are all wonderful but they are sometimes read with hysterical over emotion by the actors reading them. That said, when we hear poets read their own work they usually manage to make it sound completely flat and lifeless in my experience so I prefer to listen to actors read them. Frankie and Johnny is one of the worst culprits on this collection and is best skipped. It would be nice to have some actors who had a good understanding of the poetry they're reading. Still it is a good collection of fine poems.

The best way to enjoy poetry 13 Jun. 2002
By "honeydick" - Published on
poetry is one of those things wich either you can't stand or simply love. Having been exposed to very little myself I decided to give this coolection a try. I have purchased Naxos products in the past so I considered myself to be safe. Naxos after all is a great publisher. Well, I popped in the first CD and boy I was drawn in. The various readers used on this production were simply outstanding. I have never heard such narration before. I don't know why the reviewer below me is complaining. I have very little knowledge about the poets included in this collection but I feel I got a crash course in some ways. It was a pleasure to simply listen to the text being read. It makes for a great companion when enjoying a good cup of coffee as well. I will most definitely buy more poetry collections done by Naxos; in fact I have started listening to another set all ready. Bravo to the readers and to a fine audiobook. It is one of those books I will listen to over and over again for the works here are timeless indeed.
This audiobook contains two CD's. The narration is done by a variety of readers and the poems are complemented with musical interludes.
