Editorial Reviews

Edward de Souza demonstrates a wide range of tones in his performance of this diverse anthology from Naxos Audiobooks, which contains poetry from authors including Lord Byron, Walt Whitman, Christopher Marlowe, among others, as well as poems ranging from the deeply passionate and romantic to the bawdy and rawly erotic.

de Souza is a strong and adaptable performer whose skillful transitions from comic to tragic, sly to seductive, make this anthology perfect for any occasion. Poetry is, we might say, the spice of life - and with this collection at your command, you'll be capable of seasoning almost any situation to taste.

Publisher's Summary

A witty, bawdy, erotic but classic collection of poetry designed to celebrate the most sensual of human pleasures.

Over the ages, many poets have put pen to paper in celebration of that most raw and yet most beautiful of human instincts - erotic love. This anthology includes verse by Herrick, Marlowe, Jonson, Byron, Verlaine, Whitman, Yeats, Cummings, and, from our own time, John Betjeman. All aspects of erotic love are to be found in these poems - from the bawdy to the sensuous and tender.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
