Remember the wonderfully romantic book of love letters that Carrie reads aloud to Big in the recent blockbuster film, Sex and the City? Fans raced to buy copies of their own, only to find out that the beautiful book didn't actually exist. However, since all of the letters referenced in the film did exist, we decided to publish this gorgeous keepsake ourselves. Love Letters of Great Men follows hot on the heels of the film and collects together some of history's most romantic letters from the private papers of Beethoven, Mark Twain, Mozart, and Lord Byron. For some of these great men, love is "a delicious poison" (William Congreve); for others, "a nice soft wife on a sofa with good fire, & books & music" (Charles Darwin). Love can scorch like the heat of the sun (Henry VIII), or penetrate the depths of one's heart like a cooling rain (Flaubert). 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 the Roman Pliny the Younger, losing himself in work to forget how much he misses his beloved wife, Calpurnia. Taken together, these letters show that perhaps men haven't changed all that much over the last 2,000 years--passion, jealousy, hope and longing still rule their hearts and minds. In an age of e-mail and texted "i luv u"s, this timeless and unique collection reminds us that nothing can compare to the simple joy of sitting down to read a letter from the one you love.

Love letters can be passionate, sad, goofy, serious, bittersweet, angry, tragic, embarrassing and even romantic. Over the years, some were saved, others were not. Love Letters, Lost is a collection of love letters salvaged from flea markets, garage sales, swap meets and internet auctions. Here Babbette Hines pairs them with vintage photographs of lovestruck young couples holding hands, laughing, dancing and mugging for the camera. In an age of e-mail greeting cards, this beguiling book is a reminder of the simple beauty of a tender letter. For those who might want to try writing one themselves, suggestions from a 1919 booklet on how to write love letters is included.

From the private papers of Jane Austen and Mozart to those of Anne Boleyn and Nelson, Love Letters of Great Men and Women collects together some of the most romantic letters in history. For some of these great men, love is a ‘delicious poison’ (William Congreve); for others, ‘a nice soft wife on a sofa with good fire, & books & music’ (Charles Darwin). Love can scorch like the heat of the sun (Henry VIII), or penetrate the depths of one’s heart like a cooling rain (Flaubert). But what about the other side of the story? What of the secret hopes and lives of some of the greatest women in history? Taken together, these love letters show that perhaps little has changed 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. Includes letters by: Anne Boleyn * Beethoven * Edith Wharton * Mark Twain * Mary Wordsworth * Nell Gwyn (mistress of Charles II) * Elizabeth Barrett Browning * GK Chesterton * Queen Victoria * Napoleon Bonaparte * The Empress Josephine * Mary Wollstonecraft * Amadeus Mozart * Katherine Mansfield Praise for Love Letters of Great Men: 'The most romantic book ever' Daily Mail 'Inspired by the Sex and the City movie...

It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May did. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to people like Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart, Heath Ledger, and more -- though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating new friendships, falling in love for the first time, learning to live with her splintering family. And, finally, about the abuse she suffered while May was supposed to be looking out for her. Only then, once Laurel has written down the truth about what happened to herself, can she truly begin to accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she was -- lovely and amazing and deeply flawed -- can she begin to discover her own path in this stunning debut from Ava Dellaira, Love Letters to the Dead.

Before she died, she made Julien promise to write her one letter for each year of her life . . . and now, in this moment, in the most famous cemetery in Paris, Julien stands with his painful first letter in his hand. Here, even though Julien wouldn't believe it, something wonderful is going to happen . . . Come with us down the narrow streets, past the cosy red bistro on Rue Gabrielle, all the way to Montmartre cemetery with its beautiful stone angels, and discover the truth we all hope to find: that love is real, that miracles can happen and - most of all - that it's never too late to rediscover your dreams.

Hello, everyone! My name is William O. Thompson, Jr. I was born the sixth child of eleven. I have three wonderful brothers and seven beautiful sisters. I was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on March 3, 1967. I moved to Columbia, South Carolina, in 2003, and I been here ever since. I am the proud father of eight children; I have five beautiful daughters and three very handsome sons. I have two failed marriages, and I have seen a lot of pain in my years, so through all my pain, I gave birth to this book. It is dedicated to the woman I have been looking for all my life. I am in love with you, but I don’t know who you are, but I do know we share the same heart. If you happen to find me through this book, then you will find us, and some of the poems are for all those who are going through a rough time in their life and relationships—those who really want to be loved and give their love to that special someone. But people like us must beware that we are light, and those who lurk in the shadows of darkness seek to destroy our hearts and everything that’s good. I have been in two bad relationships and have seen the darkest side of life. That was so devastating to me, but I never let it destroy the man I am. Instead, I just put words to my pain (and yours) and all the things I see in this world. So I am a voice, expressing for you and me. My heart is still full of love, and I am waiting patiently for the one I can give my all to. So I hope this book of love letters to you finds you, and you find us.
