The legendary dramatic actress indulges our host with a reading of lines from the poem ‘Ulysses’ by Alfred Lord Tennyson.
This was just beautiful.
Helen Mirren is such a queen!! I want every audiobook narrated by her
❤️ her voice. 🙏🏻
Manly tears were shed by Colbert.
When I’m her age I hope I look half as beautiful as she does!! 😍
AUDIO BOOK, AUDIO BOOK, AUDIO BOOK. Take my money!
I couldn’t read Ulysses. I can’t even listen to an Irish man read it for me. But Helen could get me through it.
Helen Mirren is a master of manipulating her tone to capture the human condition. Fantastic! She could read the Yellow Pages and make it sound beautiful!
She is a treasure.

Here is the text:
Old age hath yet his honour and his toil; Death closes all: but something ere the end, Some work of noble note, may yet be done, Not unbecoming men that strove with Gods. The lights begin to twinkle from the rocks: The long day wanes: the slow moon climbs: the deep Moans round with many voices. Come, my friends, ‘T is not too late to seek a newer world. Push off, and sitting well in order smite The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths Of all the western stars, until I die. It may be that the gulfs will wash us down: It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles, And see the great Achilles, whom we knew. Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’ We are not now that strength which in old days Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
Class, grace, intelligence, and dignity personified.
“To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield”
I didn’t understand what is the poem about
