Classic Love Stories: Twenty Timeless Tales of Romance (Paperback)

Unavailable. Withdrawn from sale by publisher.


Love, that most universal of emotions, has been the wellspring of some of our most enduring and irresistible works of fiction. Many authors have mined this rich vein to produce a wide range of tales from the light hearted to the passionate to the tragic. Long before the genre of "romance" filled the aisles of bookstores, writers filled pages on the subject. Classic Love Stories gathers together a rich assortment of their work. Collected here are vintage tales from Shakespeare's time through the dawn of the twentieth century. Life may have been simpler then, but human emotion was just as complex as it is today. An anthology filled with some of your favourite writers - O. Henry, Edna Ferber, Charlotte Bronte, Charles and Mary Lamb, Kate Chopin - and some lesser-known gems - Ada Cambridge, Frank R. Stockton, Katherine Mansfield -
