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.

From the private papers of Winston Churchill to the tender notes of an unknown Tommy in the trenches, Love Letters of the Great War brings together some of the most romantic correspondence ever written. Many of the letters collected here are eloquent declarations of love and longing; others contain wrenching accounts of fear, jealousy and betrayal; and a number share sweet dreams of home. But in all the correspondence – whether from British, American, French, German, Russian, Australian and Canadian troops in the height of battle, or from the heartbroken wives and sweethearts left behind – there lies a truly human portrait of love and war. A century on from 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. Edited and introduced by Mandy Kirkby, with a foreword from Orange Prize-winner Helen Dunmore.

Love letters during the Napoleonic wars were largely framed by concepts of love which were promoted through novels and philosophy. The standard texts, so to speak, which were written by major authors who inherited this Enlightenment bearing, responded to the emerging concepts of love found in novels and philosophical essays. Love among this Napoleonic coterie is unique because it demonstrates the reciprocal relationship between the love letter and the romantic novel. Germaine de Staël, Juiette Récamier, Chateaubriand, Benjamin Constant, Lady Emma Hamilton, Napoleon Bonaparte and his brother, Lucien Bonaparte, were the authors and recipients of some of the most passionate love letters of this period. They were also avid readers of the newly emerging genre of the romantic novel, and many of them were also authors of such works where they projected their personal romances onto the characterization of their fictional heroes and heroines. In addition, these authors had lived through the recent French Revolution and the Terror. Imprisoned during the Revolution, or branded as emigrés upon their return to Paris, their mature adult lives were spent in the shadows of the Napoleonic wars in which they shifted political loyalties as the specter of Napoleon’s powers grew from First Consul to Emperor of Europe. The looming threat of war ignited the depths of their passions and inspired their intellectual analysis of love, happiness and suicide. Their evolving concept of love was a romantic, all-consuming passion which gripped the lovers in fatal embraces. This book’s analysis of their love letters and romantic novels reveals the emerging political landscape of the period through extended metaphors of love and patriotism.
