Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(5 stars; 1 reviews)

This is a volume of poetry by Madison Julius Cawein. This collection contains many examples of Cawein's own particular style of dreamy poetry, strongly characterised by references to mythology and romance. At the same time, there is no shortage of references to his native Kentucky. - Summary by Carolin (1 hr 31 min)
