Bravo! Again!

    So that’s how you read those poems. That is excellent. I think Burton really nails it.

    Thanks for directing me to this stunning reading, Hopkins is the Rachmaninov of poets. When I was in college I used to listen to a tape of Burton reading John Donne. At the time it helped my understanding of Donne and poetry in general enormously.
