    Ebook by R. Allen Shoaf

    Just as the mythical pied-piper’s trance enthralled listeners, the poetry in Pied-Piper Philology: Love Words enchants readers with a new spin on love poems. R. Allen Shoaf’s collection of poems deftly interweaves linguistic insight into the tale of two people learning that a love of words can nurture words of love, in turn fostering acts of love. The poems explore intimacy, discourse and lovers learning how to listen and talk with each other physically. With literary, mythological and etymological allusions, Shoaf’s compilation presents a new outlook on the familiar path of romantic love.
