In 1853, bursting with emotion, Charles Baudelaire confessed to his muse Madame Sabatier: "Sometimes, I can find relief only in composing verses for you." Is there any better way of expressing feelings of passion and longing than with poetry? The French have excelled at this, resulting in a rich tradition of love poetry: theirs is the language of love. Filled with devotion and lust, sensuality and eroticism, fever and overture, these poems showcase some of the most passionate verses in the French language. From the classic sixteenth-century love sonnets of Louise Labe, to the piercing lyricism of the Romantics, to the dreamlike compositions of the love-drunk Surrealists, French Love Poems is the perfect, seductive gift for the one who makes your heart flutter. This collection includes poems by Louise Labe, Charles Baudelaire, Stephane Mallarme, Paul Valery, Paul Eluard, Albertine Sarrazin, and many others.
