Description

A complex and truly timeless emotion, love – whether passion or heartbreak, infatuation or flirtation – has provoked some of the greatest names in literature to write verse of outstanding beauty.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, pocket-sized classics. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition features an introduction by bestselling author, and Romantic Novelist Association prize-winner, Joanna Trollope.

There has always been love, and we have been writing poetry about it for over 4,000 years. From John Donne and William Shakespeare to Emily Dickinson and Christina Rossetti, the very best classic love poetry is collected in this elegant anthology, Poems for Love. That we still read and enjoy these heartfelt poems today is a testament both to their individual genius and to the enduring power of love.
