"Nothing could be more characteristic of the Romantics than their ability to see the world afresh. And this is nowhere more clearly seen than in this selection of poems commemorating a small, little-seen bird, which has an important place in mythology and literature: the nightingale." (from the introduction by Duncan Wu)
This travel-sized collection of 22 poems chronicles the conversation between the Romantic poets and the tiny bird which, for them, spoke with the very voice of nature itself.
