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.
