    Good to read on a sunny day

    William Blake, William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and John Keats. Wow. Don't let the price fool you here. Perfect for a sunny day when you want to just relax and love nature. The blank verse parts are a bit dull and incrediby long, and some of the language is archaic and hard to get at first, but each poet will strike you dumb at least once. The Lord Byron section is particularly captivating because most of his are love poems rather than depictions of English countryside. Keats and Coleridge are rather long-winded, although Coleridge is quite interesting to read. My favorites here are Blake and Byron, who stand out from the rest with their unique subjects and wordplay.

    Overall, this collection is a must for anyone who loves poetry or English history.
