Description: The poems collected here have been written by men and women whose longings for love, over the centuries, have been condemned and even persecuted -- among them Walt Whitman, Hart Crane, Gertrude Stein, Federico Garcia Lorca, Djuna Barnes, Constantine Cavafy, Elizabeth Bishop, W. H. Auden, James Merrill. Those whose desires have been deemed dangerous place a unique value on true love, and their celebrations of it are among the most perceptive and exultant we have.

From Michelangelo's "Love Misinterpreted" to Noel Coward's "Mad About the Boy", from May Swenson's "Symmetrical Companion" to Muriel Rukeyser's "Looking at Each Other", and from Shakespeare's sonnets to his young man to Frank O'Hara's "To You", these poems take on both desire and its higher power: love in all its tender or taunting variety.
