Lyrical Ballads features a selection of poems from Wordsworth and Coleridge's 1798 collaboration, which marked the beginning of the English Romantic poetry movement.
In the first episode, we hear Coleridge's "Lewti" and Wordsworth's "The Thorn", while the second episode showcases Coleridge's "The Nightingale" and Wordsworth's "Lucy" poems. In the final episode, we hear Wordsworth's "Lines Written A Few Miles above Tintern Abbey" and Coleridge's pseudo-medieval ballad, "Love".
The poems are expertly read by Julius D'Silva, Mark Meadows, and Peter Gruffyd. This selection was adapted and produced by Emma Harding.

It is a fantastic and well narrated audiobook. Compared to a number of audiobooks I have listened to in which poems are recited, this, by far, has to be the best.
The poem entitled "Strange fits of passion' was one of the best poems.
I have not listened to any other audiobooks by the narrator, however I shall look into more.
It was an extremely engaging book, one of which I was able to remain interested with the plot and was able to read in the space of one evening.
