Rupert Brooke's greatest poetic works including "The Fish", "The Soldier", "The Old Vicarage", "Grantchester", and "Ding-Room Tea" are superbly melded here with testimony from acquaintances of Brooke's and a well-researched narrative by Mike Read. In this comprehensive production including poetry, interviews, and biography, we hear about such intreguing areas of Brooke's life as the women in his complicated love life and the inspiration and source of his numerous revered poems. Brooke died at 27 years old on his way to fight the Turks in Gallipoli, buried abroad so there truly is now "some corner of a foreign field that is forever England".More

A good, good intro to Rupert Brooke
I liked the format very much, hearing the passionate sensual, lush, musical poetry of Rupert Brooke, as well as a well spoken, well-paced and informative accompanying story of his life, which sadly ended much too young. I'll listen to this again. However, can't give it five stars because it's not one of those few books that I am compelled to recommend to family, friends, acquaintances and even strangers.
LISTEN TO THE BEST OF POETRY!
