Utterly Beautiful, 18 Mar 2009
Quite simply, this is one of the most beautiful things I have read. I first encountered some of these poems after reading Wuthering Heights whilst travelling (also stunning)in an edition which contained a few poems at the back. It reads as if it were written yesterday and yet offers a glimpse into the mind of a creative genius living in the mid 19th century. This is not happy poetry, but it is powerful and fascinating.
