Marriage PoemsBook - 1997
A sparkling collection of poems about virtually every aspect of matrimony: courtships and weddings, adulteries and separations, domestic harmony, wedded bliss. Here are marriages made in many cultures and eras, delightfully evoked by poets ranging from Shakespeare to Omar Khayy#65533;m to D.H. Lawrence and Mona Van Duyn. From the rapturous infatuation of the Song of Songs to Ovid's cynical advice on 'The Art of Deceiving a Husband,' no facet of the matrimonial state remains unexplored.
