From the private papers of Mark Twain and Mozart to those of Robert Browning and Nelson, Love Letters of Great Men collects together some of the most romantic letters in history. For some of these great men, love is a Ace~delicious poisonAce(tm) (William Congreve); for others, Ace~a nice soft wife on a sofa with good fire, a books a musicAce(tm) (Charles Darwin). Love can scorch like the heat of the sun (Henry VIII), or penetrate the depths of oneAce(tm)s heart like a cooling rain (Flaubert). Every shade of love is here, from the exquisite eloquence of Oscar Wilde and the simple devotion of Robert Browning, to the wonderfully modern misery of the Roman Pliny the Younger, losing himself in work to forget how much he misses his beloved wife, Calpurnia. Taken together, these Love Letters of Great Men show that perhaps men havenAce(tm)t changed so very much over the last 2, 000 years; passion, jealousy, hope and longing are all represented here Aceq as is the simple pleasure of sending a letter to, and receiving one from, the person you love most.Remember the wonderfully romantic book of letters by Beethoven, Byron and Napoleon that featured in the Sex and the City film?
