What the Critics Say

"By getting 16 distinguished actors, including Edward Fox, to read 48 poems from five classic English poets and three contemporary Americans, Josephine Hart set out to illustrate Gray's definition of 'poesy' as 'thoughts that breathe and words that burn'. She succeeds." (The Observer)
