    Very interesting read though I wished they had it formatted differently (the original poems were in the back while you had the history and criticism with the English translation in the main part. I would have liked to been able to read the original and the translation side by side with the history first and the criticism last instead of the two intertwined). A few poems showed Therese's humor quite well. Those were fun. :D Very interesting read though I wished they had it formatted differently (the original poems were in the back while you had the history and criticism with the English translation in the main part.

    A lovely collection of Saint Therese's poetry. What I especially liked about this book is that both English and French translations are included, so I was able to brush up on my French. Also, the French versions often rhyme, unlike the English translations. Being able to see those rhymes and plays on language would not have been possible without the French. A fun and enlightening read. A lovely collection of Saint Therese's poetry.

    While a great poet the Little Flower is not, her divinely inspired mind is as evident here as it is in any of her other works. The notes from the translator range from merely helpful to beautifully poetic in their own right.
