The Picador Book of Love Poems

by John Stammers (Editor) - £9.99  Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780330456883 | ISBN 10: 0330456881

With The Picador Book of Love Poems, award-winning poet John Stammers has created a unique collection: by pairing some of the finest love poems from centuries past with modern counterparts, he presents a book of surprising connections, echoes and juxtapositions, where classic and contemporary love poems shed new and unexpected light on one another. Here, old favourites from Spenser to Tennyson sit side by side with poems by Carol Ann Duffy and Michael Donaghy, the distance between the poets closed by their single timeless theme.
 
Whether you’re feeling tempted, seduced, tormented, or rejected, or falling in love, or out of love – this is the perfect book to inspire, console, and give a voice to every facet of our deepest and most complex human emotion.
