Good reader and good car listen for poetry lovers & newbies
Reviewer Kim Langley
 October 01, 2014
I thought that the reader was very good and the poems interesting and well chosen. I've listened to this in my car twice and found it thought provoking and stimulating. It's no easy task to choose a representative group of poems on a timeline, and I was impressed with these choices! I am a long time poetry lover, but I imagine this would be useful for students too. If my kids were still at home, this is something we might have listened to on a car trip and stopped and talked about after each poem. We're all geeks, and proud of it! :-)
