This is a beautiful collection of love poems from Beethoven to Napoleon to name but a few. I saw this featured in Sex and the City and had to read it! I then found out it had been created following the demand after the movie and thankfully it was!
Made me laugh when one 'Great Man' wrote love letters to multiple women but I guess the heart can love more than once!
Get it for a loved one of yourself, truly heartwarming.

I have so far had 3 different editions of Love Letters of Great Men, this was the first and was given to me as a present. The letters are incredible, but as far as the edition, it's ok, but I wouldn't say it was great. What annoyed me most was how much the voice of the editor features throughout. In the introduction she starts talking about her boyfriend's love text to her about the football or something and how much love letters have died out and with them romance. This kind of twaddle goes on throughout the book with every biography (which are tiny, don't include much information and are not well written) containing her personal comments and some really pointless remarks. I found it off-putting how much her voice came across. However, finding the letters beautiful and addictive, I did some research and bought another edition, the one edited by John Kirkland, but that also disappointed. In fact it is almost the same book, both having almost the same amount of authors, but without the editor's voice and with a lot of errors. Both editions come across as really rushed, clumsily put together and not particularly special. The third one I bought is a more recent edition and has a lot more letters and information in it. There is no editor given but it is published by English Rose Publishing. It has a lot of letters which aren't in other editions and has over twice as many letters in, is better edited and put together. The first two resulted from the Sex and the City film so that's why they were rushed, actually looking at the publication dates now they both came out within a month of the film!

Apparently this is similar to the book read from in Sex in the City but it is a book of love letters written by famous men. I suspect it was written after the film but it is a clever thing to do and a great read.

Such a lovely read, with beautiful love poems that make you think, are there really men out there nowadays who are *that* romantic (goodness i hope so!!!) I did an English Literature Degree and the book took me back to some of the greats... Byron, Pope, Barrett Browning + if you're a Sex And The City fan, it also contains the Ludwig Beethoven poem to his 'Immortal Beloved' that Carrie and Big read in bed! An amazing book and one i will keep forever on my bookcase

This is a beautiful book, it is the written love notes of great men to their partners, it is filled with inspiration, true elegance and a real sense of how people used to be able to communicate more prosaically through the written word.

I bought this as a gift to remind myself what love is, it is inspiring and beautfully presented and well worth a read for hopeless romantics and anybody who has ever been in love, or is in love.

Okay, forget the hype from the film for a moment, this collection of love letters really is great! It just goes to show that whatever the age or era, relationship 'rules' really haven't changed that much: Man besotted with woman. Woman likes man. Breakdown happens. Man besotted with next woman. Good book. S.I.

Having been inspired and uplifted by being in love, and being such a love-aholic, I decided to buy this book out of impulse. And oh my goodness I absolutely adore it; reading the love letters of world-famous legends, from Beethoven to Napoleon! Such an uplifting read. Makes me want to send love letters to my fiance, too!
