Great poems but very poor format

The problem with this audiobook is that it's impossible to locate individual poems - it's just one 3-and-a-half hour track. There's no contents list either. I ended up going to a bookshop and copying down the index from the back pages of the paperback. That said, the poems are beautifully read by top actors and it's a good selection.

One long chapter

Would have been so good if each chapter was a poem. But no it is all one long chapter. Not good. You can't go directly to the poem you want to listen to.
