The Picador Book of Wedding Poems

Peter Forbes

The Picador Book of Wedding Poems is not just a pocket-sized Cyrano de Bergerac for the romantically tongue-tied: it is a veritable dictionary of all the ways in which love can be declared. If you’re in the first throes of new love, need to put a relationship to the test, or have reached the point of a great affirmation or commitment, you’ll find a poem here beautifully fitted to the occasion. This is an ideal book when a speech – whether public or private – has to be made, an instant cure for love-letter writer’s block, and the perfect companion on those lonely evenings when we need our strongest emotions put into words – written by the greatest poets in the language.
