Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Romantic Movement, Alain de Botton explores the progress of a love affair from first meeting to breaking up, intercut with musings on the nature of art of love. The relationship between Alice, an advertising executive, and Eric, a banker, is examined at every stage, supplemented by quizzes and line drawings by the author and commentary by a chorus of great philosophers, from Descartes to Plato to Aretha Franklin. The Romantic Movement will charm readers and lovers alike with wit, insight, and intelligence.

Synopsis:

Looks at the psychology of men and women in love, as it portrays a modern relationship between Alice and Eric. Some of the themes explored include the question of knowing one's partner in a relationship, the issue of power between people, and the link between love, sex and shopping.

Synopsis:

Following the success of >Essays in Love<, Alain de Botton once again looks at the subject of love in this funny and intelligent portrait of a modern relationship. "His books are original hybrids, part novel, part philosophical reverie. They are solemn, ridiculous, charming and funny." Kate Kellaway, >Observer<. Picador.
