Editorial Reviews for this title:
This collection of letters conveys timeless tales of love and passion written by some of the most interesting male figures in history, including revolutionary thinkers, visionary painters, and enlightened writers. Even dark minds like Edgar Allan Poe experience love, and each letter reveals personal desires, intimate details, and intense emotions. Although similar anthologies have previously been published, never before have great love letters been available in audio form. Perfect for those moments when you are crying too hard to read.
