A beautiful book, ideal for a romantic present to a loved one. It invokes great passion and romance. It captures true love within its pages.

Dipping in and out of this book is a pleasure. Reading literary delights by famous figures from the past is a beautiful treat. It is an exploration of the human capacity to love and express love as well as giving a more personal insight into histories' greatest romances and tales. It also explores language used at its very best, written in moments which conjure the imagination wildy.

-some of the letter choices left me flat and questioning the love
- great range of "love" and motivation represented
-this collection shows well, the difference between how women and men approach writing a love letter.
- will leave you questioning your self and love

It might just be me, but once you read the introduction to the letters, especially the men, when you learn of their infidelity and bad behaviour towards their wives, suddenly the letters to their mistresses no longer seem romantic...

so far i have bought this book 5 times, mainly because people keep borrowing it and giving it back, it makes a great gift and is a very comforting read for anyone going though a break up or through first time love... it shows that even hundred of years ago we were all worried about the same things...
one tip though buy the hardcover it looks better than the paperback

Marked as Used Very Good, i would say it was more like, Used Very Poor, pages torn, grill stains as if it was on a BBQ grill. Very unhappy with the description....

A good reference point of how the view on love and romance changed throughout the years, and a fun and interesting read!

A good buy! I am a 'softy' when it comes to reading letters. It is interesting to see the different styles of writing and this also re-enforces my belief that we do not write leters as much as we used to.
