Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Critical introductions to a range of literary topics and genres. The Literature of Love is designed to introduce students to one of the central themes in literature. Focusing first on different types and aspects of love - physical, emotional, spiritual - it then offers a chronological coverage, aiming to illustrate ways in which attitudes to the representation of love in literature have evolved from Chaucer to the present time. Other sections of the book examine particular genres such as the love sonnet, the love letter and 'romantic' fiction; and the differing reception of this literature over time is also considered. The book includes extracts from and a discussion of, a range of authors, including Chaucer, Lady Mary Wroth, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Thomas Hardy and Tony Kushner.
