To celebrate Southbank Centre's Festival of Love, hear readings from heartbreaking love letters. Discover some of the most beautiful letters ever written. 'I love your verses with all my heart, dear Miss Barrett ...' begins the first love letter to poet Elizabeth Barrett from her future husband, fellow poet Robert Browning. Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning's letters, Keats' to Fanny Brawne, Gertrude Stein's to Alice B. Toklas, and those by the poets Lewis Carroll, Paul Laurence Dunbar, D. H. Lawrence, Charles Olson, Alexander Pope, Walt Whitman, Philip Larkin and W. B. Yeats are among some of the most famous in literary history. They reveal as much about the time and their writing as they do the heat, passion and despair of courtship.
