A Treasury of LOVE POEMS
Since time immemorial, men and women have used poetry to express their deepest emotions, and to say what can hardly be said in any other way.
In her collection of over 300 poems spanning six centuries, Bryony Anne MacGowan looks at all aspects of love, drawing in the well-known (Shall I compare thee to a summers day?) the unexpected (The Owl and the Pussy-Cat) and the seldom encountered (Very early we will go into the fields to-morrow).
Dr MacGowan has found a love poem for almost every occasion and mood; her anthology richly deserves a place on every eclectic bookshelf.
