Set in the 1790's, Burning Bright is an off-beat look at poet William Blake. Two young girls are drawn to the eclectic Blake, who is working anonymously as his political interests are aflame by the events of the era - including the French Revolution. Its an unusal period piece that gives much for the listener to absorb while trying to decipher what Blake has in mind. Well read by Jill Tanner, this audio version of Tracy Chevalier's novel is a welcome breath of fresh air.
