Great selection of work - poor narration
I was a little disappointed with the narration of Keat's works.
The way it was read it wasn't always apparent when one piece of work stopped and a new one started.
My biggest complaint of the style in which the prose is read is that Frederick Davidson sounds entirely too lackadaisical. I am half picturing the narrator picking his nails in disinterest while reading.
Maybe this is a personal preference of mine but I find that poetic prose is easier on the ears when read by a softer voice capable of clear enunciation. I love Keats but I just can't get into this narration.

Hyperion by Keats
Keats is one of the greatest English poets and here is very well read. The title Selected Poems is a bit misleading, however, as the text consists of a handful of poems and the full text of his unfinished work Hyperion. Many many great Keats poems are missing. Still, a good book for a great price.
