English literature is a treasure trove of
wonderful poetry. From Shakespeare to Milton,
Keats to Shelley and Tennyson to Yeats, this
accessible history (especially written for
Naxos AudioBooks) introduces the listener to
countless small masterpieces, including all the
old favourites and some lesser-known gems.
Whitfield explores this most expressive of art
forms and traces the historical development of
a rich and diverse canon of poetical works. The
lyrical powers of the most remarkable poets of
the English language are illustrated with over 70
extracts. This is the latest release from Naxos
AudioBooks’s successful ‘History’ series, which
includes accounts of English literature, theatre
and opera.
