Poor narration.

Couldn't listen to more than a couple of poems. The narrator just wasn't right for Housman. And he read too quickly. Sorry.

Too many errors

I listened to this whilst following the book and found the number of mistakes quite off-putting, especially when it changed the meaning of the line or ruined the metre.

Poetry read well.

I return to this reading many times, well read. Housman is a salve for the soul.
