Many famous couples and figures in history have left behind letters to their beloved, from which one can experience the depth of their devotion.

The Age of Chivalry

The Age of Chivalry brought with it a form of love letter that was filled with discrete notions and chaste compliments, which mirrored the ways of courtly love. Later on, in the eighteenth century, love letters included more personal sentiment and tenderness. In the nineteenth century, some of the most famous letters from great figures were written. Beethoven’s letter to his “Immortal Beloved” is one such letter, and it includes both warm and heartbreaking passages. One of the most intriguing things about this letter, is the fact the recipient never had a chance to read it, and whoever Beethoven wrote it to, still remains a mystery. Love letters also play key roles in all of Jane Austen’s books, and in the relationships between her characters. In Persuasion, a love letter from Captain Wentworth to Anne Elliot remains one of the more famous, although fictional, love letters to date.

Put Pen To Paper in the Name of Love

Even with the convenience of modern technology, who would not want to receive a thoughtfully written note from their loved one? The sentiment is that much sweeter, and can be stowed away and saved for years to come. Not to mention, joining the ranks of Beethoven and Austen in the throes of mortal love.
