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.

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.

Inspirational, beautiful and timeless

Any additional comments?

I have now forgotten how many times I listened and relistened to this collection. The narrators bring each poems to life and several times the words brings ears to my eyes. These poems are timeless and touches the heart. I turn to these poets when I need inspiration to write, I listen to this when I need to remember what true beauty is, and basically anytime I can. The romantic poets speaks directly to the heart, so if you love poetry, this is a must have. If you don't like poetry, you should also get it and they will remind you of the power of words to create something immortal.

Just beautiful and the music really helps to separate the different poet sections so it's easier to keep track. I haven't found another collection of different poets that is so good. Doesn't matter if you don't understand poetry; listen to the words let their rhythm and emotion take you away, and that is the highest form of understanding. Forget about the world and allow yourself the luxury to enter pure sensation
