Of Love and Desire

Author: 
Louis de Bernières

A beautiful gift book of poems on the subjects Of Love and Desire by one of the UK's best-loved writers, author of Captain Corelli's Mandolin.

Of Love and Desire is a rich collection of love poems from Louis de Bernières, written over a lifetime, and capturing its many forms – from rapture, infatuation, urgency, to sorrow, heartache and disillusion.

Poetry was de Bernières' first and greatest literary love, a passion evident in the musicality and emotion of his poems, which are full of stories and the truth of lived experience. This, his second collection, bears the mark of many influences, from the classical Persian poets, to Neruda, to Quintus Smyrnaeus, to Brian Patten.

Beautifully illustrated by Doland Sammut, this is an indispensable companion on the lover's journey.
