AllMusic Review by

An ambitious project, geared toward fans who enjoy poetry and are willing to accept concept works that aren't normal fare. Laine did 30 numbers set to poems by such classic writers as Auden, Shakespeare, and Donne. Several had been previously featured in a work titled Shakespeare And All That Jazz. John Dankworth added instrumental accompaniment.
