Poetry of Sex
may I feel said he (i'll squeal said she just once said he) it's fun said she
Sex is at the heart of love and thus - though rarely admitted - close to the poet's heart. In this wonderfully romantic, raunchy and modern collection, Sophie Hannah collects poems from as far back as Ovid right up to the present day to describe our intimate relationship with being, well, intimate with one another.
These poems are graphic, describing all manner of encounters normally concealed behind closed doors: acts of love and betrayal, debauchery and generosity, ecstasy and even agony. Many of these poems are rarely printed gems or recent discoveries, but all show us that sex can nearly be as much fun to read about as . . .
