French Love Poems by Alistair Elliot

Book Description

French love poems are about the kind of love that puzzle, delight and afflict us throughout our lives. On the way there's the first yes from lips we love (Varlaine), a sky full of stars reflected fatally in Cleopatra's eyes (Heredia), lying awake waiting for your lover (Valery), and the defeted toys of dead children (Gautier).
