  • Vintage Book of Love Poetry
    Vintage Book of Love Poetry

    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...

  • Medieval Love Poetry
    Medieval Love Poetry

    "Farewell my joy, and welcome paine, till I see my lady againe.' The quest is the essence of medieval romance, whether the search is for the ideal beloved or for the Holy Grail.

This giftbook combines the two distinct but related themes of love and romance, illustrating original texts with the images of medieval romances (stories of knightly adventures and quests) such as 'La Chatelaine de Vergi','Troilus...

    Kuruntokai An Anthology of Classical Tamil Love Poetry Reprint

    Neither of us aspire to be poets. Moreover, many of the beauties and characteristics of poetry cannot be portrayed in translation : That which is most beautiful in poetry is least subject to translation. When our English is awkward or difficult to understand, it is because problems of grace and style have not yet been overcome. On the other hand, though our bedrock is accurate translation, we do not present a critical edition, nor do we attempt to justify and document every single choice we have...

    The Reinvention of Love Poetry, Politics and Culture from Sidney to Milton

Examining the interface between social, political, and economic practices and individual psyches, as reflected in literary texts, Professor Low illuminates the connections between material circumstances, perceptions, and ideals. Through detailed readings of the work of Sidney, Donne, Herbert, Crashaw, Carew, and Milton, he shows how...

This poem has come from a great distance to find you." So begins this astonishing book by one of our leading poets and critics. In an unprecedented exploration of the genre, Hirsch writes...

  • Love is a Stranger: Selected Lyric Poetry of Jelaluddin Rumi
    Love is a Stranger: Selected Lyric Poetry of Jelaluddin Rumi

    Intense love and longing for God, the Divine Beloved, has always been a central theme in Sufism. Although, as the great poet Rumi tells us, Love speaks "a strange language", his message of spiritual love still speaks directly to our hearts after more than seven hundred years. These poems, in which he sings of separation and longing, of intoxication and bliss, of union and transcendence, will deeply move anyone who has ever loved.

    In the Bazaar of Love The Selected Poetry of Amir Khusrau

    Amir Khusrau—poet, courtier, mystic, musician—straddled the worlds of politics and Religion and helped forge a distinctive synthesis of Muslim and Hindu cultures.

It was appreciated not only in India, where his Hindavi poetry has survived through a lively oral tradition, but also across a cosmopolitan Persianate world that stretched from Turkey to Bengal.
