These short poems, covering a variety of topics, and written in a variety of poetic forms, reveal a great sensibility and imagination. They evoke images of love and separation, and the terrible beauty and power of the natural world. I only wish I could read them in their original language.
I did not care to read the introduction, however I have found the individual commentary to the poems, located at the end of the book, to be very helpful.
The type in which the book was printed was sometimes too coarse.
