Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
One would think that Poe's work would translate perfectly into dramatic interpretations, and certainly the first volume reviewed here works extremely well, but by the second tape, where poems are admittedly written from dreams, you realize how easily a poor reader can overdramatize poems best read quietly, if read at all. None of this is helped by the intent of New Millennium to gather as many readers as possible (Michael York, David Warner, among others) and inadvertently break up the unity of a poet's voice. Whitman fares no better, with the editors electing to present snippets here and there, out of context, and supplying no context, with performances by Joan Allen, Burt Reynolds, and others. Only Frost's poems seem well presented (there are 11 different readers, including Elliott Gould, Melissa Manchester, and Alfre Woodard), but he's also the poet whose work is best relayed in short poems from different periods in his career. The programs are recommended for comprehensive audio collections only, although readers such as Joel Grey, Gregory Hines, and Efrem Zimbalist Jr. might make these attractive to theater buffs. Individual poems are not listed on the packaging of the Poe and Frost tapes, where readers are listed en masse, giving no indication as who reads what.

    The Poetry of Robert Frost

    Both thoughtful and inspirational, Robert Frost describes in his work the profound meaning to be found in life, and in the world around; that which he so truly sees, and which is too often overlooked by the rest of us in the busy rush of the day. Edited by his friend, Edward Connery Lathem, this volume includes all eleven of his published works, and provides a valuable source for rest and insight; for mind and spirit; for home or at work.
