Publisher Comments:

From Ovid to Anne Bradstreet, Auden to Seamus Heaney—100 memorable poems to say I love you
From The Bible's "The Song of Solomon" to Li Po's "The River Merchant's Wife: A Letter," to recent masterpieces by the Nobel Prize winner Seamus Heaney and the British Poet Laureate Andrew Motion, each poem is preceded by pithy, introductory biographical notes. With favorites from W. H. Auden, Emily Brontë, Carol Ann Duffy, Federico García Lorca, and Jacques Prévert, this is a comprehensive collection to treasure. From the thrill of a new romance to the knowing celebration of an enduring one, from the comedy of lust to the tragedy of profound loss, celebrated poets of past centuries and renowned modern ones confess their love, or beg for it, or rage against it, sometimes with humour and often with elegance.
