Oliver Ford Davies and Jasper Britton bring cultured accents and theatrical experience to the readings of this selection of poems by William Wordsworth. Davies's more mature voice alternating with Britton's younger one enables listeners to understand the flowery language and poetic conventions of the late eighteenth century. With perfect pacing and a wide range of emotions, the speakers perform works that vary in topic--from the appreciation of natural beauty in the Lake District of England to the more enigmatic blank verse of "The Prelude." The poems are elegantly presented and organized but are not too precious--as evidenced by the country ghost story "Goody Blake and Harry Gill," which is included. This collection is a delight in every way. R.H.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
