Naxos AudioBooks begins its new series of Great Poets with William Blake. This program contains all of his most popular works - including "Tyger", "The Auguries of Innocence", and "Jerusalem" - as well as some lesser-known poetry that demonstrates the range and power of his verse.
Blake's poetry presents a series of challenges for those reading it aloud because it ranges from the exuberant to the frightening. The use of three narrators in this audio anthology is a wise editorial decision, as it allows the poems to benefit from a broader range of voices. The power of Blake's apocalyptic verse is dramatic, almost chilling.
