In this new anthology poets from across the ages lead us on a journey of love in its many forms. From Shakespeare to Rossetti, Keats to Auden, Byron to Browning an beyond, as well as a host of contemporary voices including Wendy Cope, Simon Armitage and Carol Ann Duffy, this new gathering of timeless love poems speaks to the heart about this most universal of themes.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. From BBC Radio 4’s popular Poetry Please, affably hosted by Roger McGough, comes a collection devoted to love. Here Shakespeare’s sonnets sit alongside Philip Larkin’s poignant ‘Wedding Wind’, Carol Ann Duffy’s ‘Valen-tine’ giving an onion not a rose as a gift, and Wendy Cope’s wry ‘Rondeau Redoublé’. A delightful collection to dip into.
