    I have recently been reading Ibsen in the Michael Meyer translations and have been very much impressed. So I was really pleased when I found this poetry text by him on Amazon.

    Except that it was by a different Michael Meyer. Amazon seems to be putting all the Michael Meyers together in their search function.

    Oh well. It’s a really wonderful book. I’m not in college, but I realized that I have never learned to appreciate poetry as much as I would like, although I am a big fan of epic poems. I ordered this book to help me to understand poetry better and this book really fills the bill.

    So, although I ordered the wrong book, I got just what I wanted.

    Highly recommended.

    This book is a wonderful resource for my English class. It has explanations for some of the poems, which can be very helpful if the poems are confusing. You can even look up the poems in the back of the book by first lines.
