Love desired. Love denied. Love fulfilled. Love gone by. For centuries we have expressed our love through the written word, making a gift of language and giving shape to the feelings of the heart. Love Poems is a collection of the world's greatest love poetry, by its greatest masters, including John Donne, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Lord Byron, Dylan Thomas, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Robert Frost, W.H. Auden, Emily Dickinson, and many others.
Featuring Dante's "My Lady Carries Love Within Her Eyes," Poe's haunting "Annabel Lee," William Wordsworth's "She Was a Phantom Delight," Emily Bronte's "Remembrance," and Andrew Marvell's eloquent "The Definition of Love," this treasury of love poems expresses as only poets can the ideals and passions of the human heart.
