Product description

This special edition celebrating the 25th anniversary of BBC Radio 4's hugely successful programme, "Poetry Please", features many of the most popular poems that are most frequently requested by listeners. It includes Thomas Hardy's "The Ruined Maid", readings of Shakespeare's "Sonnets" by Samuel West, and the late Charles Causley reading his moving poem about his parents' death, "Eden Rock". Other old favourites such as Yeats, Larkin and Kipling also feature, as do contemporary poets including Adrian Henry, Simon Armitage and Wendy Cope. Roger McGough, one of the most popular and acclaimed of all modern British poets, presents the compilation, bringing to it his own experience of the poetry scene and his inimitable, wry sense of humour.
