The Poets' Corner: The One-and-Only Poetry Book for the Whole Family (Unabridged) - John Lithgow

This audio book is a spontaneous act of kindness. Fifty great poets of the English Language, selected by Lithgow, and read by him and some very special friends. The surprise comes at the end, when the other readers are credited - it's a star-studded cast! If your love of poetry has grown cold and needs to be rekindled, or if you want to feed your soul on some of the finest words written in English (and performed brilliantly), then this book is for you. Or maybe you've never developed the love of poetry, for whatever reason - then this too is a book for you. Mr. Lithgow's own explanations for why he chose a particular poet or a particular poem add a lot to the appreciation of each piece.

I'm an audiobook fanatic, and of the hundreds I've listened to, this ranks as one of the very, very best.
