Love Poetry Out Loud

Love Poetry Out Loud Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Yes, it's possible to say "I love you" without saying a word. But can an adoring gaze, a bouquet of flowers, or even a kiss really express the full extent of our emotions? In the realm of love, the power of words is far better for conveying exactly what we're feeling, whether we want to seduce, plead, flatter, or convince; proclaim the depth of our devotion; or even reveal a broken heart.

Robert Rubin, whose perennially popular Poetry Out Loud helped us give voice to our inner poet, now guides us through a medley of love poems old and new, from Shakespearean sonnets to Carolyn Forché's "Taking Off My Clothes." Insightful and irreverent commentary on the poems and suggestions on how to read them aloud—accompanied by notes on their history and background—make all of the poems here as accessible, inspiring, and fresh as the first time they were uttered.

Synopsis:

This collection of 100 poems shouts out life's grand passion with the help of the voices of poets old and new. Whether long lived like Shakespeare's sonnets or newly-hewn like Carolyn Forch's RTaking Off My Clothes," this volume makes each poem as fresh and inspiring as the first time it was uttered.

Synopsis:

Following the success of Poetry Out Loud (now in its eighth printing), an affectionate celebration of the declaimed poem, Love Poetry Out Loud now turns to the choppier waters of affection itself. From Hello, I Love You to Pleasures of the Flesh to Loves Me Not, this collection of one hundred poems shouts out lifes grand passion with the help of the voices of poets old and new.

Rubins informed, irreverent style skillfully reveals the humor, beauty, variety, tradition, and passion of love poetry. Insightful commentary on the poems meanings and on ways to read them aloud, as well as notes on their history and background, are found on every page. Whether long lived like Shakespeares sonnets or newly-hewn like Carolyn Forchés “Taking Off My Clothes,” Love Poetry Out Loud makes each poem as fresh and inspiring as the first time it was uttered.
