THE POETRY OF EDGAR ALLAN POE

by | Read by Christopher Cazenove, Gregory Hines, Roger Rees, David Warner, Michael York

Poetry & Drama • 1 hr. • Anthology • ©

A solid sample of Poe’s poems, this program includes classics like “The Raven” and “Annabel Lee,” as well as lesser-known lyrics like “To My Mother” and “The Valley of Unrest.” Of the five readers on this program, David Warner and Michael York best capture the music of Poe’s poetry with their rich, resonant voices. Gregory Hines seems the least successful; his performance lacks drama and force. Roger Rees and Christopher Cazenove fall somewhere between. Piano music in minor keys works well with a number of the poems. P.B.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 97]
