Synopsis

How many of us who have read of the skylark and nightingale since our school days actually have ever heard their song? And how many of us realize the extent to which birds have appeared in the work of leading English and American poets? The songs and calls of fifty of the more common birds of England and North America are paired with such classic poems as The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, The Orioles Secret by Emily Dickinson, An Essay on Man by Alexander Pope, Roadless Area by Paul Brooks, To a Skylark by Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Birds of Killingworth by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Princess by Alfred Lord Tennyson, The Oven Bird by Robert Frost, Thoreaus Flute by Louisa May Alcott, and The Wasteland by T. S. Eliot. No effort was spared in obtaining the best field recordings to supplement those used from the Library of Natural Sounds at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.
