I'd like to write the perfect review to get you to read this book, especially since the e-book is available for free - but whether or not you read it wholly comes down to what you choose to do. I can only tell you, if you choose to read this book - that you will have made a good choice, and you will not regret it.

This is an impressive book of poetry, and last time I checked it's free online. I got my ebook at Amazon. If you like poetry that alludes to abstract ideas and mythology, this book is for you.

Some of Chesterton's writing is hard to grasp, but some of it is so clear and profound that it takes your breath away.
