Description

From Alfred, Lord Tennyson to Ted Hughes, this three CD compilation includes recordings of some of the greatest British poets of the 20th century. Thirty poets are included, each reading from their own work, often with their own spoken introductions. The selection includes historic recordings by Tennyson and Robert Browning; poets laureate John Masefield, Cecil Day Lewis, John Betjeman and Ted Hughes; unforgettable voices, such as Edith Sitwell and Dylan Thomas; and rare recordings by Philip Larkin and Edwin Morgan. The majority of these recordings are taken from BBC broadcasts and are published for the first time.show more
