For their wedding, Liz and Tom Sharp offered friends and family an opportunity to read love poems during the ceremony. Liz searched the literature and sent selections to possible readers.

Subsequently, Clifford Schwartz emailed to Liz and Tom his readings of the poems that you can listen to in this book by clicking the photographs to the left of the titles.

Click a photo the left of the title to play a reading of the poem. Click a second time to stop the reading that is playing.

Clifford Joseph Schwartz is a teacher of Shakespeare and poetry, a consulting historian of poetry, and an actor and voiceover performer.

All photographs were taken by Jo Seese on 31 August 2008.
