Bright Star by John Keats

One of the most celebrated poets of the Romantic era, Keats’ poems and letters to his beloved Brawne are the embodiment of true love. Though they never married due to his death at the young age of 25, their love lives on in the form of these heartbreaking letters.

Emma by Jane Austen

Ah, the perils of misconstrued romance. Find out what happens in this Austen classic when Emma Woodhouse gets caught up in her own matchmaking schemes.
