The "reviews" that Amazon has posted have no relevance to this CD. Alas, I've not yet heard it, but here is the publisher's description:
Over a long career Robert Graves proved a prolific writer across a variety of genres - producing historical novels, classical translations and criticism - but he regarded himself as primarily a poet.
Drawing on previously unpublished BBC broadcasts that span more than 30 years, this CD presents a selection of recordings of Graves reading and commenting on his poems, including The White Goddess and To Juan at the Winter Solstice.
Also featured is a 1954 broadcast titled The Poet and his Public in which Graves gives an insight into his feelings about his audience and the difference in his approach to writing poetry and novels
