Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A wonderful introduction to a genre I did not know existed. This book caused me to re-think the cultures of love, and the introduction by Frank Chipasula sets up a context for the reader nicely. Poets range from early and anonymous to Leopold Senghor and Dan Wylie. You don't need to be an expert to like this - it would be a nice gift to someone special.
