Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

John C. Kirkland is an attorney, author and adventurer. He earned his bachelor's degree from Columbia University in the City of New York and his legal degree from UCLA. Practicing corporate securities law in Beverly Hills, California, he travels the world seeking adventure-from being fed fugu by a geisha in Tokyo, to knife hunting for wild boar on Haleakala. He has driven a dog sled across the Arctic Ocean, dived with sea turtles in the Mediterranean Sea, and pulled a Nile crocodile from the Gombe River, but mostly he just sits around in his hot tub drinking Chateau Margaux. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

All the love letters from the "Sex and the City" movie and more! 5. August 2008
Von Lisa Connelly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have seen the "Sex and the City" movie several times. This book has all the love letters that Carrie and Big read each other in the movie. It looks to me like the book that Carrie reads in bed. Maybe the book was just inspired by the movie, which came out the same day. Either way, this book is very beautiful and romantic.

I especially enjoyed learning the details of each writer's life. It's amazing how passionate some of our greatest leaders really were. I also love the illustrations, which make me feel like I'm going back in time.

My favorite letter was from John Keats, who (I learned from reading the book) died from consumption at the tender age of 26. While separated from his true love in his dying days, he wrote:

"You could not step or move an eyelid but it would shoot to my heart--I am greedy of you--Do not think of any thing but me. Do not live as if I was not existing--Do not forget me--But have I any right to say you forget me? Perhaps you think of me all day.

"Have I any right to wish you to be unhappy for me? You would forgive me for wishing it, if you knew the extreme passion I have that you should love me--and for you to love me as I do you, you must think of no one but me, much less write that sentence. Yesterday and this morning I have been haunted with a sweet vision--

"I have seen you the whole time in your shepherdess dress. How my senses have ached at it! How my heart has been devoted to it! How my eyes have been full of tears at it! Indeed I think a real Love is enough to occupy the widest heart--Your going to town alone, when I heard of it was a shock to me--yet I expected it--promise me you will not for some time, till I get better. Promise me this and fill the paper full of the most endearing names."

Amazing, heartbreaking, wonderful! Have to stop now, and go read it again

Less letters, poorly put together and full of errors. Buy a different edition! 2. Juni 2011
Von SWodehouse - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have so far had 3 different editions of Love Letters of Great Men, this being the second and possibly the worst. It appears to be the most popular which is why I bought it but I can't understand why so many people would put up with something which is obviously rushed and clumsily put together. Just look at the contents for a start - why are some names only listed with a surname - Shelley, Goethe, Kafka etc and others have their full names - George Bernard Shaw? The Index is even worse with some authors listed by their first name! And why don't the contents match up with what is actually in the book?! And the spelling, don't even get me started - it's Edgar Allan Poe not Edgar Allen Poe! It's shambolic. Didn't anyone even do a basic proofread before sending it to the printers? And what's with the Vincent van Gogh letter being in there? The only existing letter was written to his brother after he had just been rejected by his cousin. This is the entire thing:
Life has become very dear to me, and I am very glad that I love. My life and my love are one. "But you are faced with a `no, never never'" is your reply. My answer to that is, "Old boy, for the present I look upon that `no, never never' as a block of ice which I press to my heart to thaw."
This is not a love letter! If it is then also in this book should be all of the magnificent letters which great men have written to their friends, friends of their loved ones, the family of their loved ones, their own family members, future mothers and fathers-in-law, letters asking for permission to marry their love, letters expressing their love not to the person they actually love but to other people! And Lewis Carroll? Ewww all of those letters were written to children! The rest of the letters are the same from book to book but this one has even less so there is nothing special about this book than any of the other editions. In fact the other editions are better. If like me you would rather get something well made than done in a rush choose one of the others! I have reviewed 3 now, the first one I received as a present was edited by Ursula Doyle, it appears to be the most popular one in the UK. The most recent I bought is a more recent edition and has a lot more letters and information in it. There is no editor given but it is published by English Rose Publishing. It has a lot of letters which aren't in other editions and has over twice as many letters in, is better edited, put together and has obviously had a lot more effort put into it whereas this and the Doyle one seem really rushed and clumsy. I suppose both these resulted from the Sex and the City film so that's why they were rushed, actually looking at the publication dates now they both came out within a month of the film. The publishers must have raked it in!

Excellent Book 29. Oktober 2008
Von Neil E. Cluck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I absolutely loved this book. I found it difficult to put down. It was so nice to have the short biography at the end of each love letter so that you could know something about the man who wrote it. It was also nice to know more about the role the woman he was writing to played in his life. There were so many beautiful words written in those letters. I'm glad the rest of us can get a glimpse of such passionate relationships.

Who is kidding whom? 21. Februar 2014
Von Karen Steinberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
i bought this book because I am writing an article on James Joyce's "The Dead" from Dubliners. If there is any way that the content could have been more cursory, superficial, devoid of content, I can't image how. The majority of the letters are less than a page long, double spaced, and give zero insight into the authors. How anyone got away with selling this I can't imagine. I will be a lot more careful next time. Amazon has no filter at all.

Powerful and compelling! 29. Juli 2008
Von Indian Princess - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I enjoyed reading these love letters written by several of our great historical giants, which include Napoleon, George Washington and Mozart, (to name but a few). Each selection provides the reader with a glimpse of the sensual character of each man portrayed, and the depth of his romantic feeling. This book would be a wonderful addition to anyone's library, and a great gift to that certain special someone in your life.
