Homage to Eros: 100 Great Poems of Love and Lust

Homage to Eros: 100 Great Poems of Love and Lust Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What rich pickings there are for an anthologist of love poems—haunting expressions of enduring love or of love lost, not to mention wonderful confessions, often robustly comical, of pure lust. Dannie Abse, one of Britains foremost poets, has selected 100 poems, ranging from the verse of Catullus and Ovid to recent masterworks by Irish Nobel Prize-winner Seamus Heaney and acclaimed American poet Robert Lowell. All are preceded by pithy biographical notes.

Synopsis:

This intoxicating treasury is devoted to love in all its contrary states; the eestasy of new romance, the knowing celebration of an enduring one, the comedy of lust, the heartbreak of profound loss. With contributions that range from Ovid and Shakespeare, to Seamus Heaney and Robert Lowell.
