WILLIAM BLAKE: POEMS

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nicol Williamson

Poetry & Drama • 1.25 hrs. • Anthology • ©

Samplings of masterpieces by the early Romantic poet-artist-engraver, William Blake. Though admired for some of his film and stage acting, British star Nicol Williamson is notoriously erratic, difficult -- abusive, even -- and boozy. Can he get it together to tackle a writer so esoteric that he baffled almost all of his contemporaries? Ubetcha! His voice itself is a glory. Williamson renders the obscure, mystical Blake with brilliant clarity of theme and style. He doesn't so much interpret Blake's verse as uncannily BECOME the verse speaking for itself. In short, this is the most beautiful, fascinating, indeed, perfect recording of poetry this reviewer has ever heard. Y.R.
