Great romantic moments from literature including Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Romeo and Juliet, Around the World in Eighty Days, Far from the Madding Crowd, Tristram Shandy, Hiawatha, Alice in Wonderland and many more
This is a diverting delight, a window on romance in literature. There are high lovers and low lovers, tragic lovers, comic lovers, and lovers who shouldn't be doing what they are doing at all and certainly not then and there. There is even Fanny Hill trying not to discover what physical love is about when set upon by an old roué who has paid for the privilege.
Though of special interest for lovers and their special lover's day of St Valentine, it is an amusing and sometimes surprising collection.
