The New Faber Book of Love Poems
The New Faber Book of Love Poems is selected and introduced by James Fenton, a Whitbread-winning poet, rightly praised for his own love poetry. Organised according to poets, rather than subjects, the edition celebrates love poetry originating in the English language, from the sixteenth century to the present day.
The classics and favourites are here in force, as are blues lyrics, American folk poetry, Elizabethan lyrics, Broadway songs and a full range of poetic styles from the aristocratic to the popular. There are poems by men about women, women about men, men about men and women about women.
Eminently engaging, deeply affecting, The New Faber Book of Love Poems presents some of the most emotive and memorable lyric poems ever written in the English language.
