    One thought on “The 100 Best Love Poems of All Time”

    1. I debated giving this two stars but felt like it deserved an extra one for the inclusion of Lorca, Plath and Neruda.

    2. I don't think this book deserves to call itself the 100 Best Love Poems, especially not of all time. There were lots of classics, sure, but many that weren't about love at all or just weren't that good (Your Catfish Friend? Really?) or inadvertently hilarious (from The Owl and the Pussy Cat: " 'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love, / what a beautiful Pussy you are!' "). I was disappointed, though I did discover a few new good ones.On a less serious note, I want a catfish friend.

    3. despite the purple jacket and the cover that looks like a Hallmark card, this is an admirable collection of English-language love poetry with a solid handful of translations from poets like Tagore, Neruda, Rlike, Sappho, Rumi, and others. the 20th-century American poems tend to be my favorite. really, a lovely collection, with interesting notes from the editor, very worth the read.

    4. More then anything else I love to teach teenagers to appreciate fine literature. I use my copy of this book to introduce young ladies to poetry. If you want to give youth a positive view of love this is a nice book to have in your library. I recommend it for all teachers and tutors of English literature.

    5. A wide-ranging collection of poems on the topic, including depictions of sweet, drunken, angry, religious, and romantic love, this book is of limited utility to those who don't like to reread. My two favorite love poems are included in this anthology.

    6. In addition to including the 100 "best" poems on love, it also gives a quick history or buildup to each poem.I'm not much for poetry, so my perception may be skewed a bit, but I didn't love this book. It was nice actually getting some poetry in my system but I just don't appreciate poetry.

    7. Most poetry goes over my head, but at least 10 of these poems made me smile a little :) Twas an appropriate way to spend Forever Alone Day ;)

    8. I have to read some love poems at my friend's wedding. This was a pretty good collection. Look for more love poem collections in the next few months, as I figure out what to read.

    9. Hard to say whether or not these are "the best" of "all time," but the poems are certainly provide an illuminating view of love poems from the Classics through modern poetry.

    10. A good collection of love poems, but I don't know if i'd go as far to say that they're the 100 best love poems of all time.

    11. Interesting choices, though I don't necessarily agree with all of them as being the 100 Best. But it was an enjoyable read and I was introduced to some poems I'd never read before.

    12. Great Read - all of the classics and lots of great poems I had never some across before. Only one poem per author - which I like, it leaves rooms for 100 poets.

    13. It's a reasonable collection of love poems. Nothing really special, but if you're in the mood for love poetry or need something to write in a Valentine's Day card, this could be useful.
