This poet of Victorian times was held in awe for his magnificent works, including "In Memoriam", "Morte D'Arthur", and "Charge of the Light Brigade". His language and command of vocabulary seem particularly in keeping with the grand sweep of Victorian ambition. Many selections are asembled here and read with great character by Dame Sybil Thorndike, Sir Edward Casson, and Robert Speaight.

you should probably get the album instead
The actual reading of these poems are fine, it's the way the audiobook works that isn't. It's set up in chapters rather than being tracks with the poem names (so you don't know which poem is which). Worse, the poems don't have titles and you jump from one to another extremely rapidly without a break. Suddenly at the end of the first 'chapter' (a very long poem) I found that the reading had shifted to another short poem, then we were into a third in the last couple of seconds of the chapter! At least it doesn't cost too much. If you look under music you'll find the same album with proper track titles, but whether they have titles actually in the narration I can't say.
