Foreign languages do sound so beautiful and for those who can understand them, you can say things in another language that don't translate perfectly to English so the true beauty of certain words is really only found in another language. I wish I could read French or Italian. I think European languages are so lovely, and for those who could read the non-English poems and enjoy poetry, this sounds like a gem. I'm not a poetry fan in the least, but you almost convinced me with this lovely review. Great job.

I'm really glad that you enjoyed this collection. But, you lost me at history and poetry. That's kind of two of my least favorite things there. So, I guess I'll skip this one, but I do appreciate your review.
Yeah, I understand. If history and poetry isn't your favorite combo, then I understand why you might not like this book.

Even though poetry is not one of my strong points, your review has piqued my interest. Thanks for pointing out that there is a brief Foreword that explains the poet’s thought process behind a collection. Maybe I will try this book out. Great review!

I am not so much into poems, but I surely get attracted to meaningful ones. I believe I would check this out. I don't mind the multilingual effect though!!!

Thanks for this beautiful and well spelt out review
Yes, do check it out. Seeing how you like meaningful poems, I am sure you'll enjoy this one thoroughly.

In the Twilight is various poem of love, desire that are shared all around the world. Nothing is so beautiful that to express your love to that special someone.
I get what you are saying. Nothing is more musical than the language of love.

You did a great job of describing the poems. People who are into poetry with the themes you mentioned can add these poems to their collections. Nice job!

Twilight sounds like a good book if you like beautiful poems. I'm more of a post-apocalyptic read, but I'll keep this in mind when I need something uplifting. I'm kind of interested in seeing the pages writen in different languages. Great review!
Yeah, this one transports you to a land of dreams. So, if you are ready to drift off for a while, this could work out well then.

There hasn't been much poetry I've read that goes back in time and is written by someone in modern day from the perspective of someone from the past. Just that concept makes it sound so intriguing. It's so impressive that the author knows so many languages. Perhaps some would find those foreign language poems fascinating.
You're absolutely right. I admire the author's knowledge of multiple languages too. It makes him a true scholar!

You've got that right. It does elevate you to a good mood, when that's what you're looking for.

Oh yes, the foreword is what put things into perspective for me too.
