CLASSIC EROTIC VERSE

A witty, bawdy, erotic but classic collection of poetry designed to celebrate the most sensual of human pleasures.

This anthology includes verse by Herrick, Marlowe, Jonson, Byron, Verlaine, Whitman, Yeats, Cummings and, from our own time, John Betjeman. All aspects of erotic love are to be found in these poems—from the bawdy to the sensuous and tender.

  • A fine collection of classic erotic poetry
  • Released in time for Valentine’s Day
  • Approximate running time: 2.5 hours
  • Format: 2 CD set
