“The Love Book” is… a book

“The Love Book” is… a book

Allie Esiri conceived and co-created recently the great and beautiful “The Love Book” app in which you can enjoy some of the most beautiful classic and contemporary poems, letters and prose on the always intriguing and exciting theme of love. Some of them, reading by Gina Bellman, Helena Bonhan Carter, Damien Lewis, Tom Hiddleston, Helen McCory and Emma Watson. Now, this application has gone further and has turned into this lovely book.

“The Love Book” is just what its name reflects: A book full of words dedicated to love, guided by the hands of such extraordinary writers in the English language such as William Shakespeare, E.E. Cummings, T.S.Elliot, Emily Dickinson, Scott Fitzgerald, etc. With a delicate, sober and delicious illustration both on the cover and inside, this splendid collection will plunge you into the talents of some authors who managed to give such a valuable thing called love much more than simple words, they gave eloquence and elegance. In the words of Allie Esiri in her foreword: “Because no one can express love more eloquently or elegantly than the poet.”

Its elegant and accessibility makes this book a little treasure to enjoy at any time and place.

Nothing better to celebrate my birthday with this gift wrapped in poetry received yesterday and I recommend you.

Here I leave you with one of the poems which you can find into the pages of “The Love Book”.

CLOSE CLOSE ALL NIGHT

Close close all night

the lovers keep.

They turn together

in their sleep.

 

Close as two pages

in a book

that read each other

in the dark.

 

Each knows all

the other knows,

learned by heart

from head to toes.
