Publisher's Summary

"The Tyger"… "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud"…"Ode to the West Wind"…"The Rime of the Ancient Mariner"…"Ode to a Nightingale"…"We’ll go no more a-roving"…"The Peasant Poet"
‘All good poetry,’ wrote Wordsworth, ‘is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings’ and this was to be one of the hallmarks of the Romantic poets.
With a dynamic spirit, these great English poets made a conscious return to nostalgia and spiritual depth. Each chose a different path, but they are united in a love of moods, impressions, scenes, stories, sights and sounds. In this collection of more than forty poems are some of the finest and most memorable works in the English language.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Lovely reading by Michael Sheen

This was a real pleasure to listen to. The readings are very dramatic but well judged I think. Michael Sheen has a great voice. I have never better appreciated these poems.

Excellent

A great selection of poems surveying the keys of the major canon. Thoroughly enjoyed Michael Sheens renditions particularly of Blake. Will be looking for work by him in future.
