Publisher Description

As Shakespeare so keenly wrote, "if music be the food of love, play on." And if music is the food, then poetry is the wine. In this volume of classic love poetry, the choice of words and rhythms makes us think more carefully about the meaning of language and its value to us. They become intoxicating in a way. Poems are a wonderful way to express what we feel for a very special someone, and we present here some very special poems indeed.

Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593) was a playwright, poet, and, famously, a contemporary of and influence on the great bard Shakespeare. Though he died before his thirtieth birthday and his career lasted only 6 years, he nonetheless made a lasting impression on literary history with his works such as The Tragicall History of Doctor Faustus, Tamburlaine the Great, and The Jew of Malta.

Thomas Hardy (1840–1928), English poet, dramatist, and novelist, was born on the Egdon Heath in Dorset. He studied in Dorchester and apprenticed to an architect before leaving for London, where he began to write. Unable to find a public for his poetry, which idealized the rural life, he turned to the novel and met with success as well as controversy. The strong public reaction against some of his darker themes turned him back to writing verse. Today several of his novels are considered masterpieces of tragedy.
