For those who think they don't like poetry.

I was only exposed to metaphysical poets in high school and developed an aversion for adult poetry. There are much read children's poetry books on my shelf but the gifts of Auden, Frost ,TS Eliot etc. have sat unread and unappreciated. I woke up to the fact that I need to HEAR poetry after a visit to my brother who can recite reams of it. Catching Life by The Throat was my first venture into really listening to poetry. This is a great selection with interesting commentary and excellent readers. Who knew that Roger Moore could do such a good job with Kipling?
