Description
From listening to his grandmother recite epic poems from memory to curling up in bed while his father read funny verses, John Lithgow grew up with poetry. Here he presents an outstanding treasury of 50 poems—selected with the criterion that "each poem's light shines more brightly when read aloud"—read by famous voices on an enclosed MP3 CD. The book includes brief poet biographies and Lithgow's insightful commentary. The MP3 disc is playable on any computer.

"What happens when you combine the important works of 50 stellar poets with actors as diverse as Jodie Foster, Billy Connolly, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Lynn Redgrave, Gary Sinise, and Sam Waterston (to name but a few) and commentary from actor, writer, and poetry lover John Lithgow? You get an outstanding audio presentation that truly matches its billing as 'The One-and-Only Poetry Book for the Whole Family.' Lithgow assembled works from 50 poets, including Robert Frost, T.S. Eliot, Ogden Nash, Emily Dickinson, William Blake, and Edgar Allan Poe, and matched them to the actors. The fit is perfect! The icing on this poetic cake is Lithgow's expressive commentary before and after each poem."—AudioFile
