    I m having a hard time formulating my thoughts about this beyond words like Amazing, Spectacular, etc., which give no information than my five star rating This is the best work of blank verse I ve read Considering that it s many thousands of lines of the same form, it remains varied and stylistically interesting throughout, probably due to its creative use of punctuation While it does not live up to modern standards of imagery, it doesn t have to and I firmly disagree with most modern critics on that anyway however, when Young does use imagery, he is incredibly skilled with it, especially in Night IX That s not even mentioning the subject matter of the poem s , which is dense and thought provoking, and beyond the scope of a review I recommend this to anyone who likes poetry, and doesn t mind an antiquated style, or is interested in the history of poetry and literature in general.

    Young s The Complaint, and The Consolation or, Night Thoughts was written 50 years before this partial text was published Conceived as a complete illustrated edition featuring plates by Blake, this text of the first four books of the much longer original did not sell well enough for the project to continue Dover reissued this first installment at a slightly reduced size in 1975, with the title modified as above I confess I read it out of an interest in Blake s illustrations as they appeared in their original context than out of interest in Young The poem is aptly titled within days of finishing it, I could remember almost nothing about it What a yawn.
