About the book

I arise from dreams of thee
In the first sweet sleep of night,
When the winds are breathing low,
And the stars are shining bright.
I arise from dreams of thee,
And a spirit in my feet
Hath led me – who knows how? – 
To thy window chamber, Sweet!

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Poetry is the perfect medium to express affection and passion in all its forms – from the initial stirrings of romance and desire to enduring love in full bloom.

This exquisitely illustrated anthology contains inspiring and moving poetry by some of the best-loved writers in the English language, from Geoffrey Chaucer to Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and from William Shakespeare to Christina Rossetti.

About the author

Max Morris's love of poetry began when he was interrailing round Europe as a teenager, with just a volume of poems to while away the hours. Ever since then, he has been passionate about sharing the joys of poetry through his many anthologies.
