Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the accompanying book to the excellent BBC video, Six Centuries of Verse. I was lucky to get a used copy in great shape. The book and the series cover an extensive list of English (also includes Irish, Scottish, and American poets) poets. Examples include Shakespeare, Marlowe, Wordswoth, Swift, Blake, Shelley, Keats, Poe, Tennyson, Whitman, Houseman, Thomas, Larkin, etc. The book also contains beautiful illustrations. In the DVD, the poetry readings are performed by distinguished actors/actresses who at times can convey the emotion intended by the poet. Both the book and the DVD are probably one of the best poetry anthologies one can own.
