Realms of Gold is one of the best audio recordings of Keats's poems/letters. Sometimes the reader (West) reads too fast for my ear--but I can imagine he'd want to read quickly, as so many of Keats's letters "read" as if he were dashing off thoughts; his pen trying to keep pace with his "teeming brain". :)

Ben Whishaw is still the best reader of the poems I've ever heard- if only he would make a CD of them..

All spoken by British actors.


I was able to get "Realms of Gold" as a download from Audible.com. It's one of my favorite bed-time "listens" on my iPod.
