Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bleeding Hearts presents a selection of truly neurotic and tortured love poetry-poems for the mean times, for the broken hearts, for the trampled hopes and for the rare and fragile outbreaks of nervous optimism. This is the Woody Allen School of Love: tragic, fun and surprisingly sexy.

At last, a book for anyone who has binged on the saccharine songs of Love, anyone who has ever waited by the phone, and anyone who plans to somehow survive the angst, agony, and ecstasy of modern love.

Poets included: Anna Akhmatova, Yehuda Amichai, A.R. Ammons, Maya Angelou, James Berry, Nina Cassian, C.P. Cavafy, Wendy Cope, Noel Coward, ee.cummings, Carol Ann Duffy, Robert Creeley, Paul Eluard, Tess Gallagher, Robert Graves, Sophie Hannah, Adrian Henri, June Jordan, D. H. Lawrence, Liz Lochhead, Roger McGough, Pablso Neruda, Dorothy Parker, Brian Patten, Octavio Paz, Alice Walker.
