The Picador Book of Love Poems Synopsis

Here, old favourites from Spenser to Tennyson sit side by side with poems by Carol Ann Duffy and Michael Donaghy, the distance between the poets closed by their single timeless theme. Whether you're feeling tempted, seduced, tormented, or rejected, or falling in love, or out of love this is the perfect book to inspire, console, and give a voice to every facet of our deepest and most complex human emotion.
