    There was some lovely poems in this collection, some were even incredibly heart breaking. I had just come out of hospital and I wanted to read some romantic, love filled poems. I liked quite a lot of them however I couldn't rate it higher because I was surprised that this collection of love poetry included some rapey poems or lusting after very young girls and that's just wrong on so many levels. Too many of these poems were disgusting and I'm disappointed they were included (one poet referring There was some lovely poems in this collection, some were even incredibly heart breaking.

Too many of these poems were disgusting and I'm disappointed they were included (one poet referring to his wife as 'you bitch' yep that's true love right there), yes you can argue that some were written back in the days when all of that was okay but they shouldn't be celebrated in this day and age, I strongly believe they shouldn't have been included. So yes some really lovely, beautiful and romantic poems but someone really should have checked the other more disturbed poets. x

    Years ago I owned this book and somehow or another, I lost it. The only book I've ever lost that I know of. I don't know which edition I had, but it is excellent. These are all the best love poems throughout history put in one book. Years ago I owned this book and somehow or another, I lost it. The only book I've ever lost that I know of.
