    " I understand that the translation doesn't adhere to closely to the original, but I can't read the original, so can't compare myself. Still, the 1859 translation feels remarkably current in my 2011 reading. Very enjoyable collection of short, linked, rhyming verses. "

    " The language is a little confusing at first, but it's a nice read once you get into it. "
