This wonderful audio edition is read by British actor Sam West, who has notably starred in iconic films such as Notting Hill and Darkest Hour, and has a run time of approximately 90 minutes. It includes 46 poems and is divided into sections covering musings, youth, family, love, imaginings, nature, war and endings.

Chris' wonderful anthology features famous poems, old and new, and a few surprises. Classic verses from William Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll, W. B. Yeats and Christina Rossetti sit alongside poems from Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, Carol Ann Duffy, Neil Gaiman and Roger McGough to create the ultimate collection brought to life by West's exquisite readings.
