ABOUT THE BOOK/
Love in its many forms has historically been the touchstone of great poetry, from Li Bai to Rumi, Shakespeare to Neruda.
As a first-ever joint literary venture between the Philippines and Singapore, Love Gathers All breaks new ground. In this cross-cultural project, 127 love poems by 93 poets in both countries are published side by side in one volume, together with a selection of beautiful illustrations that invokes and celebrates the tribulations and ecstasies of love.
This unique publication will be a firm foundation of the cultural bridge that is being built between two close ASEAN neighbours.
This book is jointly published by Anvil Publishing (Manila) and Ethos Books (Singapore).
