Description
From the private papers of Beethoven and Lord Byron to those of Anne Boleyn and Queen Victoria, this anthology collects some of the most romantic letters in history. Passion, jealousy, hope, and longing are all found here, as is the simple pleasure of sending a letter to, and receiving one from, the person you love most. Taken together, these love letters of kings, queens, composers, writers, and poets—including Edith Wharton, Mark Twain, Mary Wordsworth, Nell Gwyn, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, G.K. Chesterton, Napoleon Bonaparte, Empress Josephine, Mary Wollstonecraft, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Katherine Mansfield—reveal that perhaps we haven't changed so much over the last 2,000 years.
