Similar comment as previous lesson. Love to have some titles of their works or songs included in this lesson. Perhaps you have some advanced lessons using their works and poetry and then a note where to locate them from this lesson would be nice. אני תמיד רוצה לילמוד משיעור מעוד מלאI always want to learn from a very full lesson.
