The Colour of Love


Jonathan Steffen’ s offerings in this volume are all love poetry, sometimes with unexpected subjects. And they show the painter within the poet as their use of colour marks these out as extra-ordinary love poems, felt with a deep passion.

On reading and re-reading this volume, the reader becomes more and more engaged with the deeper emotions behind words. Jonathan and read English at Cambridge from where, on graduating he was awarded a Travelling Studentship for English Poetry and later taught at Heidelberg University.
