Poetry by definition, achieves its effects by rhythm, sound patterns and imagery. One of the most popular areas of audiobooks -- spoken poetic form -- evokes emotions and sensations by bringing the voice of the poet to life in an appropriately intimate way, directly to the ear and mind of the listener.

This exceptional anthology, compiled by Garrick Hagon, includes 65 examples of the free spirit of America in all its glory, featuring the works of Dickinson, Lowell, Frost, Longfellow, Emerson, Whitman, Poe, Cummings and others.
