Review:

“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

From the Back Cover:

Amongst the delights featured in this comprehensive collection are Sir Ralph Richardson reading Keats' 'To Autumn', Dylan Thomas raging through selections from Milton's 'Paradise Lost' and James Mason's mellifluous renderings of Robert Browning. There is a gallery of poets – TS Eliot, W H Auden, Dylan Thomas and Ted Hughes – reading their own words, and of course there are favourite poems by Donne, Blake, Burns, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Tennyson, Kipling and many others…
