Book cover
MODERN LOVE y AN ANTHOLOGT All thoughts, all passions, all delights. Whatever stirs this mortal frame, All are but ministers of Love, And feed his sacred fame. NEW YORK MITCHELL KENNERLEY MDCCCCVI With a fevj obvious exceptions ct Modern Love is a collection of poems by living authors, chosen from fifty different volumes, many of which are, unfortunately, little knovun in this country. is believed that this is the first anthology of love poems to be published which has avoided the insincere elaboration and hyperbole of the style of the love poems of early literature. In its place uue find the spirit of sadness and mel ancholy but it is a more real sadness than the extravagant lovers complaints of days gone by and the result is certainly fine poetry . No selection from the Modern Love of Mr. George Meredith has been included in this volume in the hope that readers are in possession of the Mosher edition of this great sonnet sequence, and no poems by lltfr Siuinburne have been printed here as it is in tended to issue a volume of selections from his works, uniform ivith this volume. cmr fMo. i Ttef, Contents 15 If Love Should Fail DolRe Radford 1 6 Fears Unknown 17 Epitaphium Citharistrae Victor Plarr 1 8 A Tragedy Theo.
