Description: Offers a collection of the best writing on love. This book presents an anthology of writing on various aspects of the most important emotion on earth.
Synopsis: An exquisite collection of the very best writing on love. THE LOVE BOOK presents a new anthology of writing on all aspects of the most important emotion on earth. There's true love, unrequited love, erotic love, platonic love, thwarted love, comic love, mourned love and just about every other type of love, explored here in poetry, prose, letters and lyrics from the greatest writers in the English language. In one fabulously comprehensive volume, Allie Esiri brings together texts ancient and modern, from William Shakespeare to Sharon Olds, Catullus to Carol Ann Duffy, the bible to Bob Dylan; she offers us sonnets for wooing, lamentations for loss and perfect passages for weddings. Full of classics and all-time favourites, THE LOVE BOOK also includes lesser-known marvels, such as Mozart's love notes, Sappho's lesbian odes and a letter from Napoleon.Forget corny greeting cards and chocolate box cliche, this is the literature of love at its finest. Beautifully presented and helpfully divided into themed sections, it's an indispensable collection for anyone who's ever had a heart.
