Summary

Love and poetry just naturally go together—and this collection celebrates romance in its many facets, from first blush to the comedy of lust to profound loss. It includes ancient favorites like the Song of Solomon; recent masterpieces by the Irish Nobel Prize winner Seamus Heaney and the British Poet Laureate Andrew Motion; and classics from WH Auden, Carol Ann Duffy, Federico Garcia Lorca, and Jacques Prévert. Wonderfully illustrated throughout, this is a handsome tome to keep and an even better one to share and give.
