Contemporary English Literature, Vol. 1: Poetry of Robert Graves, Elizabeth Jennings, Edith Sitwell, C. Day Lewis

With original works from Robert Graves, Elizabeth Jennings, Edith Sitwell, and C. Day-Lewis, this album provides an insight into the personality of each poet. Graves’ work illustrates a humorous argument in “Mike and Mandy,” while Jennings’ poems focus on the loss of a child and her travels in Italy. Dame Edith Sitwell explores themes of conflict in her poem “Heart and Mind,” and C. Day-Lewis’s work explores themes of nature. This album invites the audience to interact and relate to each poet’s personal work.

Liner notes include information about the authors and other suggested poetry and literature recordings.
