D. H. Lawrence vs. his readers

(3 Sterne)

Inasmuch as Lawrence's poems are superb, some of these recordings are a bit either too awkward or pedantic and pompous. Some read it as prose, without any respect for verse end; others veer off to a more theatrical and melodramatic reading, sounding a bit artificial. Also, a few recordings are poorly made, with a lot of hissing and plosive sounds, which makes the listening experience a bit unpleasant. Still, the anthology itself is excellent and Eva Davis' delivery, for one, is great -- paused and heartfelt without soundind too stagy. I just wish that this book's entire perfomance was a bit more consistent and homogenous.
