Publisher's Summary

Naxos AudioBooks continues its new series of Great Poets, represented by collections of their most popular poems in one program. Although John Keats had a short life, he produced a series of outstanding poems, many of which appeared first in letters to his sister. He was largely unappreciated during his lifetime and died in Rome at the age of 26. Most of his 150 poems were written in just nine extraordinary months in 1819. This selection contains some of his finest works, including the principal "Odes", "La Belle Dame Sans Merci", "Old Meg", and "Much Have I Travelled".
Listen to more great poets, including William Blake, Rudyard Kipling, W. B. Yeats, and Great Poets of the Romantic Age.

Here is the list of poems in this collection

Below from Naxos Audiobooks is the list of poems on this audiobook:

Great Spirits now on Earth are sojourning
Much have I travelled in the realms of gold
On the sea
Wherein lies happiness?
On Sitting Down to read King Lear once Again
Bright Star! Would I were steadfast as thou
Old Meg she was a Gipsy
Deep in the shady sadness of a vale
A casement high and triple-arched there was
Ode to a Nightingale
Ode on Melancholy
Why did I laugh tonight? No voice will tell
La Belle Dame Sans Merci
Ode on a Grecian Urn
To Sleep
Ode to Psyche
A haunting music, sole perhaps and lone
To Autumn
This living hand, now warm and capable
When I have fears that I may cease to be
From Endymion
There was a naughty boy
The Eve of St Agnes

Michael Sheen

One of my favourite narrators reads one of my favourite poets. I bought this because of the emotionally lucid Michael Sheen, and Samuel West is no less excellent.
