As I was reading the reviews for this book, one of the reviews for this book caught my eye, it was from a man named Arthur (a good choice -is his review title), who ordered this book for his wife, because he stated that he was not gifted in writing love letters, and he said that sometimes he reads one of these love letters, and poems to his wife, and that he recommends for other men to do this for their wives, and to trust him, that they would not be disappointed! WOW! This romantic man's wife is a very lucky woman! I would just love for a man to read, to me, one of these love letters and poems! Can you imagine? I know my tender heart would just completely melt!
This book contains a awesome collection of love letters and poems, from famous & non-famous people of long ago! These love letters and poems are in their original format, and style of their own unique version of English. These people come alive right before you eyes, and you feel what they feel. On each letter or poem, it tells who the letter was written by, and sometimes to whom ,it was written for, and the year. This wonderful book contains letters and poems from:
TSARINA ALEXANDRA to TSAR NICHOLAS II OF RUSSIA
KING HENRY VIII to ANNE BOLEYN
LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN to IMMORTAL BELOVED
LORD BYRON to LADY CAROLINE LAMB (August 1812)
ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWNING (How Do I Love Thee?)
NAPOLEAN BONAPARTE to JOSEPHINE BEAUHARNAIS
and there are so many more, that you can't name them all! But you will love this book, and you will want to read it more than once! You will feel like you are traveling through time ,seeing all these people fall in love during all these years ,that are in our history of so long ago!
Part of me wonders if this collection is the culmination of a fifth-grade class project -- though even if this were the case, I imagine there would be some sorely disappointed parents out there. The only value of this text is that it has inspired me to perform the research on my own to get the ACTUAL versions of the letters *alluded to* in this volume.
Shame on you, Pacific Publishing Studio and John Bradshaw, "editor." (I assume no relation to Carrie Bradshaw, who famously draws on a supposed text of a strikingly similar title in the SatC film a year prior to this book's publication?)
defintely wish i had not wasted the money
