Christina Rossetti - Selected Poems

Reviews & Comments


'Rossetti writes beautifully, and Miriam Margolyes is fantastic in capturing the delicacy of feeling in her poetry. The spiritual tragedy movingly described with simple words in 'Despised and Rejected' sounds absolutely poignant with Miriam's resonant voice. Listening to the other poems I know - 'A Better Resurrection', 'Good Friday', 'Echo', 'Up-Hill', 'Remember' and 'Song when I am Dead' - I can't help thinking, "Now this is a reader who's in love with what she's reading." It's just amazing how the rhythm of Rossetti's poems is matched by Margolyes's lovely cadence... Miriam's expressive reading, along with the introductory music, infects you with the poet's sensitivity.' - Big Finish customer
