Edited by Dannie Abse
Whatever the occasion, Favourite Love Poems will offer the right phrase at the right time. Whether it’s a wedding, an engagement, a Valentine gift or even a funeral, the powerful evocation of love in all its guises can be found within these pages. Passion, lust, loss, jealousy, respect and affection are just a few of the myriad elements of the love we share with one another.
Dannie Abse’s selection is a personal one, including famous poems as well as those hardly known even to the poety-reading public. With favourites from W.H. Auden, Carol Ann Duffy, Seamus Heaney, John Keats and Shakespeare, and illustrated with nostalgic images, this is a comprehensive and beautiful collection to treasure.
