The Vintage Book Of Love Poetry Paperback / softback
by John Fuller
Paperback / softback
This anthology is shaped not by literary chronology but by the timeless human drama it records: its five 'acts' move from speculation and COUP DE FOUDRE through the troubled endurings of love - its consummations, dangers, joys, perversions and abdications - to loneliness and memory.
In addition, the poems are presented anonymously, so that Marvell's coy lady rubs cold shoulders unexpectedly with Gershwin's naughty baby; and complex psychological fictions are overthrown by squibs.
John Fuller provides a provacative introduction to this uniquely expressive handbook of shared emotion.
