The most adored love poetry in history gathered together in an attractively packaged volume and featuring all the legendary figures from Donne to Dickinson and beyond.

Auden to William Shakespeare, John Donne to Emily Dickinson, Robert Browning to Roger McGough, this new anthology will delight, comfort and inspire anyone who has ever tasted love - in any of its forms.
