4.0 out of 5 stars A broad selection of varied love poetry, 5 Oct 2000
This BBC book is a fantastic selection of short to medium length poems about the different aspects of love. It is a good introduction both to poetry in general and to love poetry specifically. It is divided into sections; "Love's beginnings" and "Love Fulfilled" are two, which help you to find a selection of poems that suit the moment or mood. It contains old favourites (Shakespeare, Tennyson, etc.) and some modern surprises (Wendy Cope's "Valentine" will make you laugh). Wholeheartedly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect encouragement, 30 Sep 2000
This book is such an easygoing introduction to writing; at times its gentle encouragement convinced me to pick up pen and paper and start writing immediately! Julia Cameron treats writing as a pleasurable hobby, not as a serious business. At times, this book was more common sense psychology than writing advice. The writing exercises help focus you on writing from the heart, not for profit. I loved every page in this book and can wholeheartedly recommend it.
