Poetry is a fascinating use of language. With almost a million words at its command it is not surprising that these Isles have produced some of the most beautiful, moving and descriptive verse through the centuries. In this series we look at a particular theme through the eyes and minds of our most gifted poets to bring you a unique poetic guide. Classic Love Poetry. "If music be the food of love, play on" was one of Shakespeare's finest lines. If music is food, then poetry is the wine. In this volume of classic love poetry, the flavoured capture of words and rhythms makes us think more carefully of words and their value to us. They also surprise us with their structure and meaning, layering in thoughts and emotions that we might otherwise shy away from. Poems are wonderful ways to express what we feel for a very special someone.

Many of the poems are also available as an audiobook from our sister company Portable Poetry. The full volume can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores. Among the readers are Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe., Stella Gonet and David Shaw-Parker
