If you could sum up Classic Love Poems in three words, what would they be?

Exquisite. Delightful. Superb. There are not enough positive adjectives to describe these set of classic poems.

Have you listened to any of Richard Armitage’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've always loved Richard Armitage's voice, thinking back on the excerpt of North & South, which I heard him narrate. I haven't listened to any of his previous narrations, but I'm thinking about buying the whole lot now. He could be reading an instruction manual in any language and I'd still keenly listen to it.

Any additional comments?

Brilliant collection of poems. Hope more comes with Mr Armitage reading them.
