Collected Poems was first published in 1958 and has sold over two million copies. It has been reprinted numerous times and has absorbed, one by one, the volumes of additional poems that continued to appear regularly until Sir John Betjeman's death. Here for the first time is the audio edition of the Collected Poems.
From his early poems, like Death in Leamington and The 'Varsity Students' Rag, through his best-known works, such as Slough, Upper Lambourne, A Subaltern's Love Song to Dilton Marsh Halt, and The Last Laugh, the unique and original poetic voice of Britain's best-loved Poet Laureate resounds throughout this remarkable collection.
Readers include Clare Corbett, Tom Lawrence, Phyllida Nash, Simon Shepherd, and Bill Wallis. Download and start listening now!
