From the private papers of Mark Twain and Mozart to those of Robert Browning and Nelson, Love Letters of Great Men 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). 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 Love Letters of Great Men show that perhaps men haven’t changed so very much 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.

"Letters are among the most significant memorial a person can leave behind them" said Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. This English Rose book is the most comprehensive collection of love letters available, containing a huge selection of some of the all time greatest love letters ever written. You will find in here all of the classics - Napoleon Bonaparte, Lord Byron, John Keats, Henry VIII, Ludwig van Beethoven etc. - but you will also find some treasures, little known and rarely published love letters, such as those of Prince Albert, D. H. Lawrence, Sigmund Freud, Horatio Lord Nelson and Abraham Lincoln. Whatever the tone, the context or style of the writing here displayed, what is true is that these letters are genuinely captivating. Throughout history, great men have written noble tomes. Their love letters are no exception. We can find in these correspondences some of the most delectable personal effusions ever written, the most incredible demonstrations of devotion and affection - not fictional, but real, impassioned, painful and heart-wrenching. Our interest in reading these letters, is partly in their magnificent language, their eloquent expressions of love, their romantic effluence, but also, it is in their demonstrations of the universal human vulnerability in love. Love letters infectiously render past lives into our modern reality, immersing the reader in the author's home, habits, enjoyments and romances. These men come to life through their personal letters, more so than anywhere else. They show us the human side of men who stand as giants in history, whose actions and legacies have helped to shape the world as we know it. In their moment of separation, without the crowd, without the nobility or the just cause, here, in their most vulnerable, exposed state, we see the person behind the celebrity. With these letters we have the unique ability to spy on the personal lives of men considered 'great'. Their humanity, so lacking in the history books, is all we are privy to here. There is no great action, no battle won, no literary accomplishment, only deep personal feeling and romantic expression. This English Rose book is a high quality, well formatted, stunning hardback edition. English Rose love books and think that every one is special, so our editions will always be distinctive, professional and unique.

A powerful collection of love letters shared between soldiers and their sweethearts during World War I Love Letters of the Great War brings together some of the most romantic correspondence ever written: passionate love letters sent from British, American, French, German, Australian and Canadian troops in the height of battle, and the heart-breaking replies of their girlfriends, wives and sweethearts. From eloquent declarations of love and longing to wrenching accounts of fear, jealousy and betrayal, each set of letters reveals a story. Some soldiers wrote simple thank you messages for provisions sent, others penned heartfelt goodbyes, many shared sweet dreams of home. But in all the correspondence, there lies a truly human portrait of love and war. These letters, many of which have never before been published, are introduced by a brief piece about the correspondents. Some of the characters in these pages were parted for ever by the tragedy of war; others reunited. Together, a century on from the start of the First World War, these letters offer an intimate glimpse into the hearts of men and women separated by conflict, and show how love can transcend even the bleakest and most devastating of realities.
