What rich pickings there are for an anthologist of love poems—haunting expressions of enduring love or of love lost, not to mention wonderful confessions, often robustly comical, of pure lust. Dannie Abse, one of Britain’s foremost poets, has selected 100 poems, ranging from the verse of Catullus and Ovid to recent masterworks by Irish Nobel Prize-winner Seamus Heaney and acclaimed American poet Robert Lowell. All are preceded by pithy biographical notes.
