The poets represented here include Walt Whitman, Hart Crane, Gertrude Stein, Federico Garcia Lorca, Djuna Barnes, Constantine Cavafy, Elizabeth Bishop, W. H. Auden, and James Merrill. Their poems of love are among the most perceptive, the most passionate, the wittiest, and the most moving we have. From Michelangelo's Love Misinterpreted to Noel Coward's Mad About the Boy, from May Swenson's Symmetrical Companion to Muriel Rukeyser's Looking at Each Other, these poems take on both desire and its higher power: love in all its tender or taunting variety.
