Historic Recordings from the British Sound Library: British poets reading their own work.
I bought it for a friend who, at the age of 80, has just received her BA in humanities. She is delighted with the recording. The delivery, from (Nik-Nik) was prompt and the goods were exactly what I wanted. A completely perfect purchase

lol... wen u listen the first few lines of Charge of the Light Brigade by Tennyson... u think '..eh? i carnt hear this ..' THEN u realise just how old the recording is...(05.1980) - next you look in the accompanying leaflet to see they have printed the poems/portion of poems which are hard to hear - .... track 09, is cheery Tarantella(12.1932) chuntered out by author Hilaire Belloc... so .. this is just what one asked for... recordings of the original - not always clear/complete but, hopefully, true to the individual authors'. One can always read/listen on other audio recordings for clarification but to hear the originals is an eerie, fab experience. Im enjoying it.

The Spoken Word - Poets 10 Dec. 2006
By Dan Funsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A wonderful collection of modern poets reading their own work. It is a delight to hear Lord Alfred Tennyson read 'The Charge of the Light Brigade," or J.R.R. Tolkien reading (in Elvish) "The Nine Rings." A wonderful gift for a poetry lover.
