From the introduction by Irwin Edman: "The songs gathered in this volume point up the arresting fact that for the generality of mankind - and these songs come from many civilized countries of the globe - love is not something necessarily reserved, arcane and mystical, nor something merely to be dissected intellectually. It is something sweet and something sad. It has its gaieties and its ironies; it has its smiles and its tears."
