William Blake was largely unrecognised during his lifetime but is now considered a seminal figure in the history of poetry of the Romantic Age. His prophetic poetry has been said to form "what is in proportion to its merits the least read body of poetry in the English language".
Here a selection of his finest work, starting with "And did those feet in ancient time", is read by Sir Ralph Richardson.

It would be nice if iTunes store listed the poems contained on this audiobook. Also, the 10 poems download as one single track rather than one track for each poem. Obviously this is a major disadvantage for anyone wishing to get to a particular poem. Otherwise, I'm glad I purchased this audiobook.
