What the community says about Hymns to the Night
- "The solution is not good enough because the topic is about the best books of 1800s and not only the year 1800. I doubt that this book belongs even to the list of the best works of the year 1800 but that's not the point here. There were a lot of amazing books written in the 19th century, many of which are considered classics nowadays and are objectively superior to the "Hymns to the Night"."
- "As a true romantic and a big poetry fan I was excited when I started reading this novel. It was published in 1800 and unfortunately this novel really shows the problem with translating an old text like this. I have read translated poetry in the past but I found this one almost unreadable in it's current translation. The poem is still a timeless classic but I'm going to keep looking for a better version so I can get more of the authors original intent. "
- "This book is not an amazing must-read. The translation is poorly done by someone that is not even a poet. I was very disappointed in this book as I'm sure if it was translated better it would be filled with great things, but I couldn't even read it. I'm sure there are better things out there."

- "Not a great choice, the translation of the long poem is subpar and doesn't do much to get the reader involved. There are better choices with much more solid results out there. I was not impressed with the translation as I found it lacking overall in many angles. I lost interest very quickly upon reading the book. "
