Sintesi dell'editore

William Wordsworth (1770 -1850) is one of the most popular and enduring of the English poets. His poetry is beloved for its deep feeling, its use of ordinary speech, and its celebration of nature and of the beauty and poetry in the commonplace. Together with his friend, the poet and political activist Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Wordsworth helped launch the romantic age in English literature. These poems demonstrate the astonishing range and beauty of Wordsworth’s work and his sustained, coherent vision.

William Wordsworth was a defining member of the English Romantic Movement. Like other Romantics, his personality and poetry were deeply influenced by his love of nature.

“[Wordsworth’s poetry] is great because of the extraordinary power with which [he] feels the joy offered to us in nature, the joy offered to us in the simple elementary affections and duties.” (Matthew Arnold)

Narrator ruins everything

I wasn’t sure if I was listening to lord farquad on Shrek or if this was actually serious…bummed out that my favorite writer’s works were unbearable to listen to more than five seconds
Booooooo

Less drawl, more rapture

I think the reader of any Romantic poet needs to have more rapture in his voice than Davidson provides. There’s a tired and slightly slimy drawl here that might be suited to later, more decadent poetry. I like his attempts at a northern country shepherd accent in “Michael, however, and on the while enjoyed listening.

Hard to follow

I struggled to follow the readings of these poems. I know that Wordsworth is a well respected poet, but I’m not used to the sort of flowery, superfluous language or the didst, thy, hath type of language. I found many times listening to this where my mind drifted off and I had to put in an effort to focus back in. The best audio books are the ones where I have to give very little effort to focus and be drawn in.

I don’t get a lot of time to read so I didn’t feel like putting that effort in. So listening was a bit of an experiment to see if I would enjoy the poetry read aloud enough to listen again or actually take time to get a book in front of me.

Part of it was also the fairly monotone voice that the reader used. And frequent feedback sounds. It was not a quality recording compared to newer recordings or made for Audible options
