Everymans Library continues to maintain its original commitment to publishing the most significant world literature in editions that reflect a tradition of fine bookmaking. Everymans Library pursues the highest standards, utilizing modern prepress, printing, and binding technologies to produce classically designed books printed on acid-free natural-cream-colored text paper and including Smyth-sewn, signatures, full-cloth cases with two-color case stamping, decorative endpapers, silk ribbon markers, and European-style half-round spines.

Synopsis:

The poems collected here have been written by men and women whose longings for love, over the centuries, have been condemned and even persecuted — among them Walt Whitman, Hart Crane, Gertrude Stein, Federico Garcia Lorca, Djuna Barnes, Constantine Cavafy, Elizabeth Bishop, W. H. Auden, James Merrill. Those whose desires have been deemed dangerous place a unique value on true love, and their celebrations of it are among the most perceptive and exultant we have.

From Michelangelo's "Love Misinterpreted" to Noel Coward's "Mad About the Boy", from May Swenson's "Symmetrical Companion" to Muriel Rukeyser's "Looking at Each Other", and from Shakespeare's sonnets to his young man to Frank O'Hara's "To You", these poems take on both desire and its higher power: love in all its tender or taunting variety.

Synopsis:

From Sappho to Shakespeare to Cole Porter-a marvelous and wide-ranging collection of classic gay and lesbian love poetry.

The poets represented here include Walt Whitman, Hart Crane, Gertrude Stein, Federico García Lorca, Djuna Barnes, Constantine Cavafy, Elizabeth Bishop, W. H. Auden, and James Merrill. Their poems of love are among the most perceptive, the most passionate, the wittiest, and the most moving we have. From Michelangelos “Love Misinterpreted” to Noël Cowards “Mad About the Boy,” from May Swensons “Symmetrical Companion” to Muriel Rukeysers “Looking at Each Other,” these poems take on both desire and its higher power: love in all its tender or taunting variety.
