In this book of poems, arranged in four cycles, the speakers are archetypal lovers who tell of great love gone wrong: Minerva addresses Jupiter; Iseult speaks to Tristan; Cupid longs for Psyche. Elsewhere Hamlet speaks to Ophelia; Venus to Mars; Mary to Joseph; Rapunzel to her prince; and the Child to Santa.
At the heart of these poems is wooing, suffering and living. Their narrative of love – and love lost – is one that can be traced through literature and through human experience across the ages.
