    Actual rating: 3.5. English is not my first language so it was often hard to understand the verses. Yet some of these poems are so exquisite, so brilliant, that, in my mind, they make up for the more obscure lines. I loved that the poetry was fully complete and even included Herbert's lesser known works.
