I read this because I was curious to read something other then the Inferno. While I enjoyed the poetry and the stories behind each, I feel like the dissection of the poems killed the presentation. While it was interesting to read his perspective on their dissection, it left it feeling like I was reading a text book rather then a book of love poetry. Not something I will read again. It took me so long to read because I had to keep setting it aside for long periods. And it was slow reading on top of that. I’d recommend just getting a collection of his poems without all the other stuff.
