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.
