This review is from: The Complete Poems (Classics) (Mass Market Paperback)
The poems are stunningly beautiful and compared to a lot of classic poetry relatively easy to follow, because of their lyrical force.
The best of them have a mystical energy that transcends time. "If Grief For Grief Can Touch Thee" is one of my favourites. It is like an old friend.
It's one of the great pieces of writing integrated into my novel `A Song for Jo', where a major theme is the attempt by a young couple to live and love by the ideals expressed in some great Literature. The novel explores, in the narrative, how the force of great literature can inform and develop a receptive, creative mind, making it a love story with a difference!
People of all ages and sex have liked it a lot. It's also got a stunning Pre-Raphaelite art work on the cover. The writing is as beautiful. Take a look.
