THE HISTORY OF ENGLISH POETRY

by Peter Whitfield | Read by Derek Jacobi et al.

Poetry & Drama • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Derek Jacobi brings this production together with a clear and lively narration of its introduction. The collection is a general presentation, rather than a scholarly tome, on the evolution of the idea of English poetry (and its American cousins and influences)—and where readers fit into the tradition. In each era, the text addresses the question of what a poem was expected to be and do. These are illustrated by thoughtfully interpreted readings from works by more than a hundred poets by a group of skilled Naxos narrators. This critical history traces poets from Chaucer to Allen Ginsberg. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2011]
