Publisher Comments:

Love has been an irresistible subject for poets for thousands of years-From Catullus in ancient Rome to the most modern young poet writing today. It's said that "all the world loves a lover" and indeed, there is a magnetic force that draws us into the magic circle of love. That's why everyone who ever has loved, is in love, has lost love, and hopes for love will be thrilled by this collection celebrating love in all its forms. They have been chosen with care and thought from the abundant resources of American and international writing. Voices of the past such as Queen Elizabeth 1; Sir Philip Sydney; Shakespeare; Emily Dickinson, and Wallace Stevens stand alongside the newer voices of Robert Bly, Louise Glück, W.S. Merwin, Pablo Neruda, Galway Kinnell, Jane Kenyon, Adreinne Rich, Rita Dove, Billy Collins, Dorianne Laux, James Wright, and others. The diversity of voices and the uniting subject matter make this book both a pleasing and enriching read.
