Overview

From writer, critic, and popular cultural icon bell hooks comes a seductive portrait of passion in fifty soul-stirring poems.

When Angels Speak of Love heralds the debut of a major new poet: bell hooks. World renowned for her courageous, provocative intellectual writing and her alluring charisma, hooks poetically engages the erotic imagination — creating a tapestry of words that are sensual, lush, and profoundly inspiring.

In this beautiful new collection, hooks illuminates our experiences with love — tracing the link between seduction and surrender; the intensity of desire; and the anguish of death.

hooks's previous four titles on the topic of love — from All About Love to The Will to Change — have made her the go-to source for readers longing to bring more love into every aspect of their lives. These words are meant to be read aloud and learned by heart. This ecstatic collection affirms hooks's position as the high priestess of love.

1.

love go to my heart straight

beat beat

alive and more alive

oh time before words

and i can still remember

each touch

all every bit tenderness

only one pain

a cry to make it be

always endless bliss

2.

in love

there are no closed doors

each threshold

an invitation

to cross

take hold

take heart

and enter here

at this point

where truth

was once denied
