Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date

2 hours 3 minutes
What's in a word? Apart from its value as a unit of information is there something more? Of course. Many words sound and express themselves, when rolled around the soul and mouth, as something both desirable, tangible and complete. We submit that 'Wanderlust' has just such a feeling.Most of us have an urge to journey, to take the body and mind on a journey that will sate our curiosity, build our experiences and memories and prepare ourselves for yet another.Whether as a child journeying wide-eyed through a field, a teenager exploring hitherto forbidden zones or as adults embarking on journeys that may change our lives and relationships with new cultures, foods and sounds - it seems as if we just can't get no satisfaction till the next far-off place.In this volume of classic poetry our wordsmiths are our companions on journeys near and far. They describe and create worlds that we can explore with them, word by word and line by line.In the company of Keats, Wordsworth, Bronte, Whitman, Kipling and a wealth of others these journeys in verse will be like no other.1 - The Poetry of Wanderlust - An Introduction 2 - Song of the Open Road by Walt Whitman3 - The Vagabond by Robert Louis Stevenson4 - Travel by Robert Louis Stevenson5 - El Dorado by Edgar Allan Poe6 - The Land of Nod by Robert Louis Stevenson7 - The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear8 - Foreign Lands by Robert Louis Stevenson9 - Going Down Hill on a Bicycle, a Boy's Song by Henry Charles Beeching10 - By My Two Feet and Endless Times by Daniel Sheehan11 - Sonnet on Approaching Italy by Oscar Wilde12 - Constantinople by Lady Mary Wortley Montagu13 - In the Bazaars of Hyderabad by Sarojini Naidu14 - To the City of Bombay by Rudyard Kipling15 - Stanzas From the Grande Chartreuse by Matthew Arnold16 - England and Switzerland by William Wordsworth17 - In Amsterdam by Eugene Field18 - Dear Old London by Eugene Field19 - Composed Upon Westminster Bridge by William Wordsworth20 - A London Thoroughfare. 2am by Amy Lowell21 - In Excelsis by Arthur Cecil Hillier22 - Ballade of an Omnibus by Amy Levy23 - A Ballad of London by Richard Le Gallienne24 - The Night Journey by Rupert Brooke25 - Adlestrop by Edward Thomas26 - From a Railway Carriage by Robert Louis Stevenson27 - Rhyme of The Rail by John Godfrey Saxe28 - In the Train by James Thomson29 - To a Locomotive in Winter by Walt Whitman30 - The Ancient Arteries of America by Daniel Sheehan31 - Monadnock by John Gould Fletcher32 - To the Nile by Keats33 - Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley34 - Cities and Thrones and Powers by Rudyard Kipling35 - Tezcotinco by Alan Seeger36 - In the Belly of This Metal Beast by Daniel Sheehan37 - The Royal Tombs of Golconda by Sarojini Naidu38 - Penmaenmawr by Patrick Branwell Bronte39 - Sonnet to Lake Leman by Byron40 - Lines Written in the Highlands After a Visit to Burn's Country by John Keats41 - The Isles of Greece by Byron42 - The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus43 - Away to Canada by Joshua McCarter Simpson44 - Good-bye.
