Synopsis

Synopsis

The Everyman's Library Pocket Poets hardcover series is popular for its compact size and reasonable price which does not compromise content. Love Songs and Sonnets includes Ronsard's famous sonnets to Helene, Dorothy Parker's sardonic reflections on men and Anne Bradstreet's touching poem "To my Husband." Shakespeare is here,  of course, and Burnas, whose comparison of his love to a red, red rose remains one of the most celebrated of all poetic similes. This edition also includes a variety of delights by everyone from Thomas Wyatt to Langston Hughes, from Aphra Behn to John Updike. With a Foreword by Peter Washington, and an index of first lines.
