A Genius Performance by Tim Pigott-Smith!

A naked woman in red high-heeled shoes is perched on the edge of Clifton Suspension Bridge with her back pressed to the safety fence, weeping into a mobile phone. 


We at Brainfood Audiobooks have a very special place in our heart's, and minds, for poetry. Poetry, perhaps more than anything else, is designed for the audio format.

The difference between a good reading and a brilliant performance is breathtaking, though the words on the page are the same.

Can you beat the author reading their own works?

T.S. Eliot was a great poet, but a great performer?

You decide.


Poetry and Lifestyle


Poetry also fits into our modern life style incredibly well. One of the arts of the poet is to condense meaning into, in most cases, just a few sentences.

Short enough to allow the concentration needed to take you out of the moment.

Please don't listen to poetry while driving!


Our Poetry Performances

Our Full Selection of Poetry on Audio Cassette and Audio CD can be found here -


All Poetry on Audio Cassette  All Poetry on Audio CD
Words that Burn


As you will see, we have a wide selection for you to choose from and every one will show you a different vision of the world.

Our particular favorites include, 



The recordings, available under the British Library label, of these poets reading their own works, even though some of them are very short and difficult to hear, give an extraordinary insight into their poetry and help the listener to really develop an idea of the inner voice these poets heard when writing their poetry. 



The selection of poetry for the Diana CD set is mostly familiar but there

are so many actors included in the set this is a must have.



The final set, Catch Life by the Throat is truly the most eye-opening introduction to poetry we have ever heard. Compiled and organised by Josephine Hart, an exceptional author in her own right, this production, and it's subsequent book and CD publication, titled Words That Burnhave probably done more to promote poetry to the 21st Century public than any other single publication.

Josephine Hart's work in combining sublime poetry and exceptional acting talent makes these CDs the most highly used media we have ever had. Not a week goes by without someone in the office putting them on and it is with this in mind that we have discovered a FREE recording of one of these Poetry readings, organised by Josephine Hart, that gives a perfect introduction into the magnificent quality of these works.
