Arthur Conan Doyle - The Poetry Of (Audiobook)
Read by Richard Mitchley & Ghizela Rowe (Unabridged: 1hr 27mins)
If ever a writer needed an introduction Arthur Conan Doyle would not be considered that man. After all, Sherlock Holmes is perhaps the foremost literary detective of any age. Add to this canon his stories of science fiction and horror, his historical novels, his political campaigning, his efforts in establishing a Court Of Appeal and there is little room for anything else.
Except he was also a poet. Not perhaps the finest but his distinctive voice is certainly evident amongst his lines and verses. And it’s a voice worth listening too; something very different from what you might expect.
