Compiled by renowned sex therapist and author Wendy Maltz, Passionate Hearts is a remarkable anthology of intimate, emotionally explicit, yet accessible poetry, representing new voices as well as the most revered contemporary poets. Culled from classic works of poetry, unpublished work solicited especially for the book, and poetry and erotica journals, these poems celebrate sexual connection and expression. Contributors include Sharon Olds, Gary Soto, E. E. cummings, Marge Piercy, Raymond Carver, Galway Kinnell, Pablo Neruda, and Tess Gallagher.
Renowned sex therapist and author, Wendy Maltz assembled this collection of poetry, hoping to offer inspiration to couples who like it hot, but also heartfelt. This is an excellently edited selection--void of flowery nonsense or male-domination fantasies disguised in pretty-clothed words. We are given visions and vignettes as satiating and stirring as the act itself. For parents of young children there's even a chapter devoted to the urgency of get-it-while-you-can, as well as the deepening sexuality that comes with parenthood. "Sex has a way of softening limbs, / oiling joints and melding hearts ...," writes poet Wendy Lee. And so does this book.
