Wow ! So excited.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Six Centuries of Verse - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
I saw this when it was first shown, years ago and I've had a very poor copy on VHS so I am more excited than I can say about finally getting it on DVD. It is the most superb selection of poetry and the readers are of the best. Julian Glover giving a rendition of Beowolf, with inserts of the original language is an enormous treat. Ashcroft, Richardson and Gielgud just sitting reading the recognition scene from Lear brings one to tears. Yes, I love everything about this series.
