Just set Ted Hughes running and close your eyes

It's like having the poet in the room with you. And what a voice - it reaches right inside you. The sound quality is wonderfully clear, yet so rich.

The editor's superb selection weaves gently across a wide range, yet it all flows along effortlessly. The ebook itself is elegant simplicity - both in design and usability. And for people who think poetry is difficult, the poet's reading makes it just like a conversation.

This is already a treasured possession, and I am off now to buy another - Seamus Heaney probably.
