From Marlowe and Donne to Byron and Keats, here are the poems that form the foundation of British literature. Listen as their splendid works open windows into the beliefs and customs of the most influential eras of British history: the 16th and 17th centuries and the Romantic period. Although the patterns of sounds and words on the page can convey only part of the power of a poem, these readings by Recorded Books' professional narrators bring out the full music of these immortal lines. Side One: William Shakespeare: Let Me Not to the Marriage of True Minds; Hark, Hark, the Lark. Christopher Marlowe: The Passionate Shepherd to His Love. Ben Jonson: To Celia. George Herbert: The Pulley; Love Bade Me Welcome. John Donne: Death, Be Not Proud. Robert Herrick: To Daffodils. Andrew Marvell: To His Coy Mistress. John Milton: On His Blindness. Alexander Pope: A Little Learning is a Dangerous Thing. Jonathan Swift: A Description of the Morning. William Blake: The Lamb; The Tiger. Robert Burns: A Red, Red Rose. William Wordsworth: The World is Too Much With Us; Ode: Intimations on Immortality. Side Two: Thomas Gray: Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard. Lord Byron: She Walks in Beauty.
