Remember the wonderfully romantic book of letters by Beethoven, Byron, and Napoleon that featured in the Sex and the City film? That collection never actually existed, but all of the letters referenced in the film were real - so Macmillan created Love Letters of Great Men. 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. 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 Pliny the Younger, losing himself in work to forget how much he misses his beloved wife, Calpurnia. Edited and introduced by publisher Ursula Doyle, Love Letters of Great Men shows that perhaps men haven''t changed so very much over the last 2,000 years; passion, jealousy, hope, and longing are all represented here - as is the simple pleasure of sending a letter to (and receiving one from) the person you love most. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector''s Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector''s Library are books to love and treasure.
