“its astonishing cast of readers and many historic recordings make Classic Poems an absolute must have.

“a wonderful collection of well-loved poems read by a star-studded cast”
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.
