Information
Edited by Antonia Fraser.

Meet the romantics and the unromantics, the passionate and the fainthearted, the tragic and the comic, in all their lyrical glory. This anthology explores the full range of emotions inspired by poetry's most popular subject: love.

Antonia Fraser has made a touching, inspired and wonderfully diverse selection. Poems range from the fifteenth century to the present, from ballads to sonnets to modern verse. Included alongside well-known classics by Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson, are contemporary poems by Kathleen Jamie, John Burnside and Carol Ann Duffy, illuminating the ways of the heart in all its forms.
