Love Songs and Sonnets by Peter Washington
Book DescriptionA new collection of songs, sonnets and lyric poems that focus on love in the widest sense, encompassing relationships of all kinds. This volume includes Ronsard's famous sonnets to Helene, Dorthy Parker's sardonic reflections on men and Anne Bradstreet's touching poem To My Husband. Shakespeare is here, of course, and Burns, whose comparison of his love to a red, red rose remains one of the most celebrated of all poetic similes. Love Songs and Sonnets includes a variety of delights by everyone from Thomas Wyatt to Langston Hughes, from Aphra Behn to John Updike.

It is often said that Rumi (aka Jalal al-Din, 1207-73) is the most popular poet in the United States. The main key to Rumi's success is the spiritual appeal of his work. It combines lyrical beauty with philosophical profundity, a sense of rapture and an acute awareness of human suffering in ways which speak directly to contemporary audiences.
