With barely a dozen audiobooks to her credit, British actress Sally Scott will be a new voice to most listeners, but her performance here is sure to win fans. Clear, confident, precise, her fluent and melodic rendition of Keats's lines will draw poetry lovers back again and again. Author Lucasta Miller's approach of devoting each chapter to a single poem, and of opening the chapter with the text of the poem, is both focused and expansive, packing a broad range of biographical detail into a concentrated analysis. Scott is an exemplary narrator on every count, but her verse readings have a particular grace and naturalism--and are incomparable. Even those who have treasured Keats for a lifetime will experience these lines freshly, in all their richness of imagery and sublime melody. D.A.W.
