I found it awkward to rate this because it is a fairly small selection - he wrote about a thousand pages of verse over his long career, including a lengthy verse play about the Napoleonic wars (many writers were writing works about the Napoleonic wars a hundred years ago, just like many write about the second world war today). But the selections are well organized and represent him well. The despairing and profound fated-ness, a contemptuous but resigned acceptance of hard necessity, especially in the last section, can really get under one's skin.
