Overview

Love has fascinated writers since men and women first found words to express their romantic yearnings. Tales of passion, affection, and romance are a cornerstone of world literature and represent some the finest fiction ever written.

Love Stories features work of some of the greatest writers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries who have pondered the allure and irresistibility of love. This volume’s seventeen selections reflect warmly on romantic love and its many aspects: first love and mature love, ecstatic love and poignant love, love that redeems and love that overcomes adversity, love lost and love regained. Among the stories included:


  • “Mr. and Mrs. Dove” – Katherine Mansfield

  • “Mammon and the Archer” – O. Henry

  • “The Dilettante” – Edith Wharton

  • “Traveling Companions” – Henry James

  • “The Popular Girl” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

  • “A Lobe-Knot” – W.W. Jacobs

Whether you have a fondness for stories on the lighter side of love, or for tales full of drama and passion, Love Stories is a valentine to readers who enjoy fiction written from the heart.
