Introduction to Poetry
We’ve carefully selected over 20 of the best-loved poems from the history of English poetry, attempting to include one poem from all the major English and American poets beginning in the 17th century up to the early 20th century.
Each poem features a brief introduction and analysis to aid in appreciating the work. This collection of poetry is beautifully read by one of our favorite narrators Antonia Bath. Whether you’re a newcomer to the world of poetry or a seasoned listener of the great poets, we’re sure you’ll enjoy this collection. You can download it on MP3 (one poem per MP3 file) and bookmarkable MPEG-4 formats.
And check out this positive review of the audio book from one of our users:
“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!”
