The fully illustrated collection also contains lesser-known but equally poignant correspondents, including a soldier in the trenches in World War I. Antonia Fraser has previously written biographies of Mary Queen of Scots, Cromwell and King Charles II as well as a study of women in 17th-century England entitled "The Weaker Vessel", "Boadicea's Chariot" and the "Jemima Shore" mystery stories.

3.0 out of 5 stars a great collection...a joy to read 26 May 2002
By NotATameLion - Published on
What do we mean when we say the word? It takes many forms. There is selfish love. There is conditional love. There is erotic love. There is even a giving, redemptive, selfless love. What is interesting about Antonia Fraser's collection of love letters is how diverse they are in content and style.
All kinds of love surface in these letters. They are from diverse sources. Some letters are from famous historical figures. Others were written by relatively obscure sources. Some of the letters are very restrained. Others are full of passion.
"Love Letters" speaks to the core of what we humans deal with when it comes to love. So often represented symbolically with the rose, love too has its flower and its thorn; its spring time and its winter. Mrs. Fraser has caught the essence of love's many facets in her brilliant collection. It was a joy to read.
I recommend Antonia Fraser's "Love Letters."
