Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Perhaps no other human emotion has inspired as much of the world"s beautiful art and poetry as love. Artists, poets, and philosophers strive to define it for us, yet no single definition can capture this powerful emotion that changes in the context of each relationship. Ninety-Nine Names of Love is a gorgeous collection of words and images that draws on the world"s greatest art, poetry, and prose to describe the many aspects of the simple word "love."Love is the protector or preserver of all things: "He who loves the world as his body may be entrusted with the empire.""Lao TzuLove is generosity, giving without expectation: "Love is all we have, the only way that each can help the other.""EuripidesLove is compelling. It cannot be disobeyed: "Can there be a love which does not make demands on its object'""ConfuciusRichly detailed color illustrations from both Eastern and Western traditions further illuminate the meaning of love. Ninety-Nine Names of Love is a beautiful treasury of art and poetry worthy of its subject. aa
