Book Description

29 Oct 2009 Penguin Hardback Classics
Here are poems to take you on a journey from the 'suddenly' of love at first sight to the 'truly, madly, deeply' of infatuation and on to the 'eternally' of love that lasts beyond the end of life, along the way taking in flirtation, passion, fury, betrayal and broken hearts. Bringing together the greatest love poetry from around the world and through the ages, ranging from W. H. 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.

About the Author

Laura Barber is not a poet, but she has spent the last few years completely immersed in verse. As the editor of Penguin's Poems for Life and Penguin's Poems by Heart, she has lived, breathed and dreamed poetry - in libraries and on lawns, on beaches and in bed - and can testify to the profound effect that poetry can have on your life. More prosaically, she also publishes contemporary literature and is writing a book. She lives in London.

5.0 out of 5 stars when life gets tough !! 30 Nov 2009
Format:Hardcover
loved it from start to finish , and the beauty of a poetry book is that you dont have to do it like that. You can open the book at any page and come across real gems of wisdom.

my personal favourites are when the fella walks out on her and the biggest loss is that he s taken the cork screw ! finding yourself when you look in the mirror to be in fact your best friend ! really there are so many fab poems to appeal to all types . i simply adore it !

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice book about love 15 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you enjoy love poems about various types of people in your life, people from afar or ones you have known for a while then you'll like this book. I did purchase it thinking it would be something a little different but it is still a nice read
