    This is a lovely small volume of poetry, the pieces span Byron s entire life Most of the themes are about longing, and they re very romantic My rating does not reflect the marvellous experience of reading poetry out loud with someone else It s how poetry should be read.

    It was great to finally read some Byron, and just after Pushkin too, which was nice The poems were easy to read and frequently touched upon the subject of longing I m still a fledgling poetry scholar, so I look forward to readingByron in the future.
