A truly excellent book which is both readable and can be used for reference material. The book arrived as described and I paid a fair price considering uits condition.

A beautifully produced DVD with its only shortcoming being the severe paring of the original text (of the book) perhaps in order to enhance Miss Kinski's undoubted charms. This production, to my mind, is not as faithful to the book as the other DVD production.

This review is from: Collected Poems (Paperback)
Millay was one of the foremost writers of sonnets bridging the Petrachan classicism with modern language and style. Her sonnets encapture modern ideom within the constraints of classic form.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review 27, 19 Sept. 2011
This review is from: The Catcher in the Rye (Paperback)
Although not particularly to my taste in literature, this classic has to be read in context and, at the time when it was written, was ground-breaking and innovative in style.

A lovely cartoon story for my grandchildren. Only problem is I only received one DVD when I was expecting a collection. This was a bit disapointing.
