The History of English Poetry

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Peter Whitfield

Narrated By: Derek Jacobi

Publisher: Naxos Audiobooks

Date: September 2009

Duration: 8 hours 7 minutes

Summary:

Great poetry can indeed outlast stone and the glory of princes, and the English poetic tradition is perhaps the richest in the world. This audiobook tells the story of that tradition through its towering figures - Spenser and Shakespeare, Milton and Dryden, Wordsworth and Tennyson, Whitman, Dickinson and Eliot - and through scores of other poets. Clear and accessible, blending criticism with imagination and illustrated with scores of quotations, this new history will delight all who care about the past and the future of English poetry.

Genres:

  • Gilbert Cross

    Excellent. Of course there is only a smattering of extracts considering the scope of the work. I even learned a couple of names I'd never heard of.
