Bought this because I was surprised to find how few love poems are rated as popular on internet poetry sites, at least in English. I wouldn't have included Katherine Mansfield. Or possibly Emily Dickinson. Thomas Hardy mumbled impracations into the same sleeve where he jotted down latin derivations of topology. And I was going to complain about Rupert Brooke, but the poor man was conspired against in affairs with women, by men who wrote poems to his "boyish good looks." Where is Pushkin, the most famous (love) poem in Russian, even if it doesn't translate well?
The ending credits also confirm that most of the overwhelming illustrations come, almost without exception, from the romantic era, so that everyone seems so alert with confused longing that their aura has crimsoned the background. The best part? The editorial choice on dividing the poems, although the poems never quite fit their label of course:
Nascent Love, Celebration and Devotion, Fulfilled Love, Departed Love, Beware Love, Lost Love and Remembrance
