My grandmother's hard cover "complete works" surrendered to old age and fell apart at the spine. Having this collection on Kindle has been a great way to "dip in" to these works, sometimes reading selections in the grounds of Newstead Abbey, I kid you not. (Byron fans will get the connection).

These poems and plays still work today because the themes remain universal and the language is still quite plain. Very well organized and presented. One further recommendation: After reading "Manfred" go and listen to Tchaikovsky's Manfred Symphony, inspired as it is by the same poem. Genius meets genius.

big collections dont work very well on kindles you cant just jump to the bits you want to read. I would get the paper copy. Cane was amazing though.

Byron was a man of his time, his world and his style of writing a past beauty. His emotions for his time though are just the same as modern man, that keep his work relevant for today.
