An anthology of poetry and prose inspired by love comprising meditations on the wonder and mystery of love by various Welsh poets and writers writing in English.
The reader will be familiar with many of the poems included in this delightful mini-anthology which concerns itself with two primal themes: sex and love.
Dewi Roberts has collated them in such a way that one faces the dilemma of wanting to turn the page, eager for more, yet also wanting to savour each on its own merits. Works from masters such as Dylan Thomas, Henry Vaughn and Richard Llewellyn are beautifully combined with contemporary artistic talent such as Gwyneth Lewis and Deryn Rees-Jones. This collection of diverse poems appeals to a wide range of tastes as it holds within an exciting wealth of talent that lingers long in the memory.
The book highlights differing themes of sex and love, from the sensual 'A Meditation After Love' to the amusing 'Dear Gethin' (when did you give someone your last Rolo?) or comparing the poignant 'To Amoret' to the earthiness of ‘Polly Garter's Song’. This collection is delightful reading and makes for a complete journey through the emotions of love and sex.
The compact size is easy to slip into your pocket for easy reference when the mood strikes. Varied, illuminating and enjoyable, this volume proves the unique power of poetry to enrich our lives.
