Did not like the way it was translated, 9 Oct 2012
I found this book very hard going. It was an early 19th century translation of the original, and I would have preferred to have read a more modern translation, and one that was in prose not poetry. I know the original was written as a poem but translating poetry into poetry can distort the meaning and makes it harder to understand. However it was still worth reading.
