Fifty poems, nineteen readers, and the definition of a Good Poem create an audiobook so good one is torn between generously lending it to friends and never taking it out of the car for fear of being stuck in traffic without it. This enjoyable collection offers hours of resonant voices and images. Gems include a vibrant and enthusiastic reading of Whitman's "Song of Myself" by Allen Ginsberg, and Roy Blount, Jr., rhapsodizing about onions in his succulent Georgia drawl. The reliable, endearing voice of Garrison Keillor transcends his Minnesotan persona to take on the voices of a range of poets, from Robert Burns to Marge Piercy. Brief interludes of piano music provide appropriate breaks for trying to decide which poem is your new favorite.
