Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the 39th poet laureate comes the universal prescription for a broken heart.

Robert Pinsky has gathered together magical words of heart-mending solace from across the centuries to read in times of trouble. With an introduction by Pinsky, this unique volume includes the works of an astounding range of poets — William Shakespeare, Sylvia Plath, Frank Bidart, Wallace Stevens, Frank O'hara, Louise Gluck, W.B. Yeats, Langston Hughes, and Emily Dickenson, amoung others. A timeless treasure to give or get, The Handbook of Heartbreak beats with the power of emotional truth; a must for anyone who has ever loved — and lost.

Synopsis:

Collected by U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky, this unique volume brings together works from poets jilted in the sixteenth century to those struggling with heartache today — including William Shakespeare, Sylvia Plath, Wallace Stevens, Frank O'Hara, Langston Hughes, Emily Dickinson, and Louise Gluck. The Handbook of Heartbreak is a must for anyone who has ever loved — and lost.
