Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michael Sheen

Poetry & Drama • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

Michael Sheen is at his best narrating the two long narrative pieces here, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" and a section of the first canto of "Don Juan." In both he's assisted by two fine but unnamed women. He's consistently good throughout the whole anthology. His Blake is prophetic and a bit mad, his Wordsworth is more stately, his Keats more wistful, and so on. The listener gets the impression that these are poems that Sheen knows and loves and wants us to love. The selections of poems are also fine; each poet's signature works and a few that are less familiar are included. This production will reward repeat listening. D.M.H.
