Labyrinth of Desire: Women, Passion, and Romantic Obsession

by

Labyrinth of Desire: Women, Passion, and Romantic Obsession Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Poet Sullivan looks at literature, film, biographies, and autobiography as a window into the nature of romantic obsessive love. Along the way, she discusses the stories of Simone de Beauvoir, Elizabeth Smart, Frida Kahlo, and others. She argues that too often, the reality of obsessive love is an inevitable disillusionment with Don Juans who use their power to control women's lives and subsume their identities. However, the nature of the yearnings of obsessive love should tell women something about the nature of themselves.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
