Description - Love Songs and Sonnets by Peter Washington

A 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.
