'its astonishing cast of readers and many historic recordings make Classic Poems an absolute must have. What greater added value could there be than TS Eliot, Auden, Hughes and Dylan Thomas reading their own verse ... Ralph Richardson makes Blake's Tyger lazily terrible, James Mason puts incalculable menace into Browning's 'My Last Duchess' and Diana Quick shows us just why 'Aurora Leigh' was a sensation in its day. It is an especial treat to have Burns and Yeats read with the Celtic lilt they deserve.' Independent 15/2/97 'a wonderful collection of well-loved poems read by a star-studded cast' Express 3/1/98
