Nothing has inspired writers more than love, and this anthology gathers thousands of years of ageless love poetry from around the world. From William Shakespeare to e.e. cummings, it includes classic verses by Lord Tennyson, Percy Shelley, and John Donne, alongside great works by Eastern writers like Ibn 'Arabi and Rumi, as well as lesser known gems from indigenous peoples in Africa, Australasia, and the Americas. Exploring the many facets of love—desire, devotion, delirium, joy, and sorrow—this uniquely diverse volume reminds us of the bonds we all share.
