In November 2005, hundreds of people submitted recordings of Shakespeare, Wordsworth and Roger McGough in an attempt to win a prize—participation in the recording of this new poetry collection by Christina Hardyment, historian and audiobook reviewer for The Times. The collection covers a wide range of classics by Shakespeare, Keats, Clare, Blake and others, as well as modern poems by Roger McGough among others. They are read mainly by the male and female first prize winners, but also by the runners-up. Poetry reading is alive and well in Britain!


   




Review By Alidë Kohlhaas,Lancette Arts Journal,December 2010

How very much poetry was and still is meant to be read aloud becomes very obvious in Poetry for the Winter Season issued by Naxos. This 2-CD collection is the final release of a poetry series in audio book format read by amateurs rather than trained actors, and also by a few modern poets reading their own work or that of others.
