William Wordsworth’s poetry. Until now I have taken it in moderation throughout my life. Of his poetry; it is up to the reader to determine its value.

Of this book; wow! Too much for me. Page after page, line after line- although occasionally there was a brightness, even reading it aloud was brutal. I read a lot of poetry, of the masters, contemporaries, quirky and obtuse; when I completed this book a month later I was proud of myself. Not for having come to know the poetry of the man, in depth,...more

I didn't read Wordsworth's complete works, just a few selected titles. Much of his verse can be read like prose. I don't mind poems that actually convey some coherent story. Wordsworth's "Michael" is a short story written as a poem. "Prelude" is his autobiography. I'll read more of his work if I ever have time.

This is a splendid collection of Wordsworth that is delightfully read by Oliver Davies and Jasper Britton. I enjoyed it immensely and it gave me a new appreciation for a poet I often overlook.

To beings else forlorn and blind!
Up! up! and drink the spirit breathed
From dead men to their kind.”
