A sexy, witty and moving look at the ways in which we love.
Carol Ann Duffy has selected 36 of the best world poets writing today and invited each of them to select a love poem written by the opposite sex which will appear opposite their own love poem. The poets have been encouraged to look to other centuries for their choice as well as to our own time. Simon Armitage, Hugo Williams, Billy Collins, Jackie Kay, Don Paterson, Jo Shapcott sit alongside Stevie Smith, Seamus Heaney, Elizabeth Bishop, John Donne.
This is a wonderful, heart-warming collection for every day of the year
