Love is transcendent and love is everyday, found equally in a remembered tune, on the seashore or in a cup of tea. Often awkward, never perfect, romantic relationships have been a key subject for poets for centuries. In The Emma Press Anthology of Love, fifty-six poets speak to what love means to them right here, right now.
A beautiful book with atmospheric smudgy illustrations and ruby-red endpapers.
