About this deal

I loved Napoleon’s letter to Josephine in Milan, and I also loved Mozart’s letters to Constanze sent from Dresden. Love can scorch like the heat of the sun (Henry VIII), or penetrate the depths of one’s heart like a cooling rain (Flaubert). A Hungarian composer, conductor, and pianist, Franz Liszt was a child prodigy who began studying piano with his father at the age of 6. According to the book “The Harding Affair: Love and Espionage During the Great War” by Ohio attorney and author James David Robenalt, Harding’s affair with Phillips began in 1905. As avant-garde as Ulysses was, Finnegans Wake is even more challenging to the reader as an important modernist work.

Van Gogh was buried on July 30 in the municipal cemetery of Auvers-sur-Oise at a funeral attended by his brother, Theo van Gogh, who died six months later, on January 25, 1891. From the private papers of Mark Twain and Mozart to those of Robert Browning and Nelson, Love Letters of Great Men collects together some of the most romantic letters in history. You can easily pick it up at night and read an excerpt from one of the great men of history to their true love.

Though I expected the letters in this collection to be love letters, I must admit that I was overwhelmed with how gag-worthy many of them were. I beg in your conduct not only to be careful of your honour and mine, but also to consider appearances. Were I to consult my merits my humility would chide any shadow of hope; but after a sight of such a face whose whole composition is a smile of good nature, why should I be so unjust as to suspect you of cruelty.

When you are in the room my thoughts never fly out the window; you always concentrate my whole senses. I enjoyed this book but couldn't rate it higher simply because I mean it is just a collection of love letters. However, since all of the letters referenced in the film did exist, we decided to publish this gorgeous keepsake ourselves.

Love Letters of Great Men follows hot on the heels of the film and collects together some of history's most romantic letters from the private papers of Beethoven, Mark Twain, Mozart, and Lord Byron. Hazlitt, an admirable essayist, ("On The Pleasure of Hating" is one I've studied for its surprising mixture of ambiguity and clarity) fell in love with a twenty-three year old while he was still married. My favourite letters were the ones from Mark Twain to his wife, as well as the last ones from soldiers of the war-the truly Great Men.

Well, it does my heart good that when in love these "great" men wrote as corny and cheesy love letters as I did.My sweet rose, my delicate flower, my lily of lilies, it is perhaps in prison that I am going to test the power of love. I never knew before, what such a love as you have made me feel, was; I did not believe in it; my Fancy was afraid of it, lest it should burn me up. At 14, he quit school and became an "oyster pirate," robbing oyster beds to sell his booty to the bars and restaurants in Oakland. Some of these paintings include: The Yellow House, Bedroom in Arles, The red vineyard, and paul Gauguin's Armchair.

This book is a collection of letters from (you guessed it) great men from throughout history to their love, or in some cases loves plural. p>From the private papers of Mark Twain and Mozart to those of Robert Browning and Nelson, Love Letters of Great Men collects together some of the most romantic letters in history.I really recommend this book, not only for the strong emotions that are transmitted through the letters but also as an act of leisure and meditation. Charles and Ray Eames moved to Los Angeles together and became life partners – on the love and business front – creating iconic furniture pieces that are still in production by Herman Miller and Vitra until today. William Hazlitt's letter was also a favorite, though I can't tell which one was more sad, the letter or the story behind the letter.
