9780062206404: Caedmon Poetry Collection:A Century of Poets Reading Their Work Low-Price CD

The Caedmon Poetry Collection is an exceptional audio anthology of some of the twentieth century’s greatest poems, read by the poets who wrote them.

Featuring rare recordings of William Butler Yeats reading “The Song of the Old Mother” and “The Lake Isle of Innisfree,” e.e. cummings reciting “darling! because my blood can sing,” and more than two dozen classics, this three-CD collection is a listening experience beyond compare.

Listeners will delight in hearing these preeminent poets, both contemporary and past, reading their own work the way it was intended.

From the Back Cover:

A rare and thrilling listening experience. A choice gathering of some of the twentieth century's greatest poetry... read by the century's greatest poets - here available on CD

A reawakened love for the sound of poetry has made modern poems subtly different from the poems of the eighteenth and nineteenth centures. We have only to listen to these poets reading their own works to know how important their interpretations are to a full comprehension of their poems. The ministerial intonations of Eliot, the passionate orchestrations of Thomas, the very very precise formulations of Cummings, the easy conversational inflection of Frost are integral, lending subtle clarifications which go beyond the printed page.

The fact that this recording includes the voice of Yeats is something of a miracle. In the early 1930's, when the thought of recording poets occurred to few, Yeats himself made several recordings for radio broadcast. By sheer luck, an unmutilated copy was preserved; and now the rich and melodious voice can be heard by a new generation.

The Caedmon Poetry Collection eliminates the struggle for perfect communication between author and reader. Just listen and you'll understand...
