You'll love this POV of love by the great one Jan 25, 2008
Eva Adamson and Cider Mill Press brings Shakespeare into the twenty-first century as a box of literary candy.
Women look forward to Valentine's Day and anniversaries with bated breath and great anticipation, while men, for the most part, dread these so-called "lover's days," because they never know what to buy.
Well, author Eve Adamson, together with the gift book experts at Cider Mill Press, have published an ideal gift for those days-or for that special person in your life, any day of the year. Uniquely presented in a sturdy red heart-shaped box, Shakespeare Select is a delicious, albeit fat-free, combination of sonnets, poetry and special quotes offering readers a collection of compliments, come-ons and insightful suggestions in the art of love.
First you'll notice the box's gorgeous design, complete with a miniature photo of Shakespeare. Inside are 30 carefully crafted, individually wrapped love notes, which resemble old-fashioned penny candies.
Each `Bon Mot has two purposes: one side reveals a Shakespearean work meant to inspire and set the mood, while the other side offers a flirtatious hint or suggestion that your lover will find irresistible. The 128-page mini-book is a replica of the outer gift box, full of Shakespeare's poetry, sonnets and quotes from his many plays, as well as the rules of attraction and ways to woo your lover.
The definition of love is one of the great mysteries of the universe and yet, through his sonnets, plays and poetry Shakespeare infused the literary world with a deep, philosophical portrait of relationships, the excitement of love discovered and the heartache of love lost. His wisdom of his words are captured, spiced it up with 21st century come-ons and with a magical sense of creativity delivered a one-of-kind, super-sweet gift book that says a lot without uttering a single sound.
I enjoyed the book immensely and the love notes are interesting and entertaining.
Every now and then you discover a book that's a delight to read and, even better, a delight to share with others: this is one such book.
Armchair Interviews says: Don't miss the opportunity to share the magic of Shakespeare!
