A solid performance

A solid but not remarkable performance of great poetry. If you are looking for a nearly complete reading of Blake’s poetry in one recording then this might be for you.

I’m grateful to have this recording. It is very useful and I’ve already listened to it twice and expect to listen to it many times in the future.

I love the works of William Blake. I don’t know how useful this would be as an introduction to Blake. Much of the experience depends upon seeing the illustrations that the poetry is embedded in his books.

If you are familiar with Blake’s poetry and only want to hear it then this is a good recording.

Very insightful and interesting to see how so far

ahead of his time William Blake was. His command of language and articulation impressed me.
