a nice collection with a flawed presentation
I enjoy listening to poetry reading while I am falling asleep. This a a good volume for this purpose and probably for whatever other purpose a poetry lover may want to put it to.
I give it five stars for the narration because the narrations themselves were very good. However, I have the same complaint about this production that I have with many other audiobooks: a rushed feeling. Sometimes there is a nice musical interlude between readings. Other times there barely a second's pause between the end of one and the beginning of the next. I find this jarring and annoying. I would rather they put one fewer poem into the collection and allow a breath or two between each.

I love Anton Lesser and espcially Simon Russell Beale. I saw the latter live in London in 1998 and still think he's one of the best actors alive. This is a good collection of poetry, and the performance by Lesser and Beale is excellent. I do not regret this purchase and intend to listen to this a second time.
