The Burning Wheel — Aldous Huxley

Aldous started out writing as a poet and this is his first ever book.

While there were a couple of poems in this that i could get my head around, for the most part it was all a bit too much above my 21st century head: mostly not my kind of poetry.   I would class Aldous’ early poetry as very much ringing the death knell of the Victorian upper classes.

For those of us who have been enamoured by Aldous’ later writing, it’s quite interesting to come back to the very beginning and do Aldous chronologically.

Final thoughts: not my cup of tea but you might enjoy it if you’re into pretentious poetry with lots of words that you have to look up.
