A CHILD'S GARDEN OF VERSES

by | Read by Ethan Hawke, Mary Sheldon, Ben Kingsley, et al.

Poetry & Drama • 1 hr. • Anthology • ©

Against a background of soft orchestral music a star-studded cast reads more than sixty of Stevenson's beloved poems. The wide range of performers--from Ben Kingsley and Susan Sontag, to Michael York and Carl Reiner--helps relieve the tedium of listening to one short poem after another. Despite the fine readings, Stevenson's brand of dated innocence would be more effective in combination with other more modern kinds of poetry. Although the poems are listed on each side, with the reader for each, access is a problem. If counter reference numbers were provided, a parent and child could pick a favorite poem and listen together as they follow the text in a poetry anthology.
