LONDON - Love comes in all forms and, with the month of love in full swing, a new book published by a Filipino writer is attempting to navigate this irrepressible human emotion through poetry and words.
Written, edited and published by Kristian Jeff Cortez Agustin, “For Love and Poetry” delivers 14 chapters of poems tackling different kinds of love, from the classic notion of romance, to the love of family, friends, nature, and even the patriotic love of one’s own country.
Speaking to ABS-CBN Europe at the University of Westminster in London, where he recently completed his masters in visual culture, Agustin said: “Love is just everywhere. Even if there are lots of pain or bad things that happen around us, love still motivates people. So I realized that we should talk about love more, but not just in the romantic sense, because there are different kinds of love.”
