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.
