A sublime view of nature

This is a lovely collection of some of Wordsworth's best known poems. The narration is very good and does justice to the beauty of the words. My only complaint is that no titles are given, which sometimes made it hard to distinguish a new poem from a pause for breath.

Charming

These are obviously historical recordings but that is no cause for complaint. They are clearly and charmingly read with a good diction and interpretation.

Find your own way

There is no table of contents, no titles introducing the poems and in short, no way to navigate or learn.

Playback Error

It wouldn't play whatsoever. So, I am slightly upset by this. Sad face to me.
