    1. Okay, so Lord Byron is my favorite poet from the Romantic period and when I saw this book, I had to have it. I'm a sucker for love poems and Byron's are incredible. He creates some of the best rhymes, meters, etc. that I have ever read. Each poem was a treat and I loved all of them. If you are really into love poems but you haven't looked into Lord Byron, I would highly, highly recommend it. This is the guy who is credited with creating the Byronic hero for goodness sake! He is incredible and yo [...]

    2. Recite one of Lord Byron's poems to a young lady who has just emerged from the jaws of death, and she will fall in love with you in an instant. Why, I consider Lord Byron my greatest ally in the word of amorous endeavours.

    3. This is a lovely small volume of poetry, the pieces span Byron's entire life. Most of the themes are about longing, and they're very romantic. My rating does not reflect the marvellous experience of reading poetry out loud with someone else. It's how poetry should be read.

    4. It was great to finally read some Byron, and just after Pushkin too, which was nice. The poems were easy to read and frequently touched upon the subject of longing. I'm still a fledgling poetry scholar, so I look forward to reading more Byron in the future.

    5. His love poems are fab but as a man, he was always a misogynist skunk. Nevertheless "I would not fools should overhear single sigh that should be wholly thine"d I don't know whybut rumours of bisexuality always make those "young romantics" more "hot".except Shelley, he was a doped-out borelol.

    6. I downloaded these to my i-touch and have been reading them. I am ashamed it has taken me this long to finally explore his work.

    7. Some of the poetry seemed like fluff, but some of it was really great. Too bad great romantic poetry seems to have to be written by promiscuous poets.
