This fine collection of poets of the past century reading their own poems is not unique. There are several equally fine anthologies on the market featuring many of the same poets and titles. This collection, arranged chronologically by the poets' birth dates, regardless of continuity, style, or recording quality, and without narration, introduction, or internal identification of the poets or their titles, communicates in a kind of hodgepodge the range and fullness of modern poetry. Experienced in its entirety, it highlights most uniquely the way in which not just poetic style and recording technology have evolved, but voices and pronunciation themselves. Frustrating and exhilarating, this collection is a true poetic experience. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
