Based on the popular podcast "Poetry Unbound," this audiobook is a fine anthology of poetry, as well as a very good introduction, for those who need it, to how to think about poetry. Even old poetry hands will enjoy and appreciate Pádraig O Tuama's brief and insightful essays accompanying each poem, as well as the poems themselves, many of which are likely to be unfamiliar even to experienced listeners. O Tuama clearly has thought deeply about how poems should sound, and even the shortest here (only 10 words long) is given shades of meaning by his performance. He is an especially good interpreter of poetry, both as a critic and as a reader. D.M.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2023]
