Dorothy Porter writes about love, sex, heartbreak and desire like no one else. Love Poems collects her most powerful love poetry: portraits of longing and infatuation, of bliss, passion, uncertainty and devotion. It includes extracts from her award-winning and best-selling verse novels, as well as poems and lyrics spanning her whole career.

‘A conduit to honesty, astute observation and raw emotion.’ —Herald Sun

‘This is simply an essential collection of Australian poetry, revealing how one of our best writers explored a central theme in her work over a passionate lifetime.’ —Bookseller + Publisher

Dorothy Porter is an acclaimed poet, lyricist and librettist. Her work has been adapted for radio, stage and screen. In December 2008, Dorothy Porter died aged 54. She had just completed The Bee Hut.
