The great poets worship nature with their words



I was absolutely enchanted by these poems honoring our Mother Earth and written by some of the world’s greatest poets. I had never heard most of them and it was a delightful discovery. The Wood by Charlotte Bronte is hypnotizing read by Alison Larkin of Jane Austen fame and the D.H. Lawrence is mesmorizing. What impressed me is the music especially the Beethoven pastoral piano transcription accompanying Shelly’s dreamlike poem The Question. There are gems here on every track. If you don’t have easy access to nature these poems are the next best thing. I listened to them in the woods and it was like seeing nature for the first time! Highly recommended.

A profound and healing listen

This collection of legendary nature poetry is a perfect listen for these challenging times. I try to get into Nature at every opportunity to heal from the oppression of the workplace but even then my mind wanders. These well read poems take me straight to nature’s core. The accompanying music is so beautiful I sometimes just listen to that and have to go back. I’ve listened to this audio about a dozen times already. My favorites were the Bronte, Shelly, D.H. Lawrence and the Taoists.

Some of the accents really grated

Some of the accents were really irritating, the background music detracted from the poems. Overall poor.
