This spoken word CD looks back over some of the great love affairs of literary history. The anthology includes readings of poetry, letters and extracts from works of fiction written by British poets and authors from Shakespearian times to the twentieth century. Here are real-life romantic couples, such as Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley and Percy Bysshe Shelley, John Keats and Fanny Brawne, Lord Byron and Lady Caroline Lamb, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Robert Browning. Alongside them, fictional couples declare their love in the classic literature of Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot, Arthur Conan Doyle, D H Lawrence and Virginia Woolf - the perfect Valentine's Day gift.
