    When I feel open and confident or closed or lost or confused about life or love or the world or my fellow humans or place or temporality or loneliness or home or death, happiness or hurt, I listen to this collection, and strive, once more, to claim balance, to understand which age. I believe this is the first stone we gather. This was a gift from someone I love. There are days I wish I knew what it all meant. There are days I don't. Most days I only wish her embered lips parting in laughter, kiss, When I feel open and confident or closed or lost or confused about life or love or the world or my fellow humans or place or temporality or loneliness or home or death, happiness or hurt, I listen to this collection, and strive, once more, to claim balance, to understand which age. I believe this is the first stone we gather. This was a gift from someone I love. There are days I wish I knew what it all meant. There are days I don't. Most days I only wish her embered lips parting in laughter, kiss, and hunger. And in such shared and found moments, comfort.

    Excellent readings, and some surprise selections amongst the chestnuts.

    I really enjoyed this book. My favorite part of the book was the final age (facing death). I especially liked the poem by Christina Rossetti and I always love Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night by Dylan Thomas. The pace is a little fast for my preference because I like to digest one poem before leaping to another one. Otherwise very enjoyable.

    10 stars if possible. It's WONDERFUL. Get yourself a copy and buy a copy for people you love. Michael Caine's rendition of "The Bleed'n' Sparrer" will have you laughing out loud. I listen to this in the car most days. Best British voices narrating a terrific anthology of poetry spanning the "seven ages" (think of the oft quoted section from Shakespeare's "As You Like It".)

    This was an incredibly wonderful poetry anthology. Each poem was a pleasure to listen to. I have watched many of these actors for years in various movies, so it was like listening to friends perform these poems. I will definitely listen to this again!

    I have the CD, and it is fun to listen to it with all the different great British actors reading specific poems. My friend gave me the anthology in which the CD was based on. The book definitely has far more poems! I look forward to reading the poems and listening to the CD again.

    Some of the best British voices reading some of the best poetry on the universal theme of times of life. This is wonderful, I recommend it highly, if only to hear Michael Caine recite - and really just say the name Rudyard Kipling.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this collection of poetry. I agree with previous reviews - the performances were fabulous and Michael Caine's reading of "Bleed'n Sparrer" had me grinning widely.
