My Review: 
Charles Bane's "Love Poems" is a wonderfully accessible collection. Spanning time, place, and types of love, Bane presents an entire world in each compact composition. Ranging from romantic love in rainy Paris, familial love for a child, and forgiving love for a murderer, these poems portray the simplicity of love in a myriad of complex states. This slim volume offers readers the wonderful experience of 27 poems that initially appear simple and small but in truth are snippets of one of humanity's most powerful forces...love.
