A Red Rose and a Satin Heart: An Anthology of Scottish Love Poems(2010)
An anthology of stories edited by Antonia Fraser
From First love to Farewells, this book contains the full gamut of emotions inspired by poetry's most popular subject: love. Meet the romantics and the unromantics, the obsessed and the fainthearted, the tragic and the comic, in all their lyrical glory. Antonia Fraser has made a touching, canny and diverse selection of poems from the fifteenth century to the present day, from ballads to sonnets to modern verse. Included alongside well-known masters like Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson, are contemporary poets such as Kathleen Jamie, John Burnside and Carol Ann Duffy, illuminating the ways of the heart in all its forms.
