Product Description

From Library Journal

These corresponding recordings contain prose and poetry readings that span the gamut of Western romantic literature. The list of authors whose works are included is a veritable roll call of the best-known writers of the last four centuries: Shakespeare, Burns, Austen, Rousseau, Byron, Joyce, Rossetti, the Bront s, Wordsworth, and Coleridge. Both audiotapes open with a romantic musical introduction, and the individual readings are set against similar classical pieces. English stage and film actors Michael Sheen and Laura Paton are the narrators. Both readers are to be commended for their excellent pacing and skill in voicing these highly emotional works. Despite the outstanding quality of the recordings, however, it is difficult to imagine anyone actually checking the audiobooks out of the library. The flowery verses, thunderous music, and throbbing voices of the actors may play well on stage or in small doses, but they are tiresome after more than a few minutes of listening. Recommended only for large audio poetry collections.DLeah Sparks, Bowie P.L., MD

From AudioFile

[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with A LOVER'S GIFT FROM HER TO HIM.]--Music and verse are at war in this turgid conglomeration of mismatched sounds and sentiments. Unlike Naxos's other well-chosen and well-paced compilations of lyric poetry, this pair of love orations is far too declamatory, the selections predictable, the music interminable. The readers must declaim every line to be heard over the orchestral background, and Michael Sheen, in particular, sounds like he's addressing the Senate rather than a lover. The musical accompaniment is of the swelling, rapturous kind. Could this be a Naxos parody that has somehow slipped onto the market? "Her" comes off much better than "Him" in these mismatches. Only those who have completely lost their heads in love will be able to tolerate this kitschy pair.
