About this title:
Stendhal believed love comes in different forms: from passion and lust to vanity, the love of possessive desire. In this collection, he muses on falling in love, how to cope with jealousy, and whether infatuation can ever be overcome. He also provides a selection of maxims which gives advice for lovers. United by the theme of love, the writings in the "Great Loves" series span over two thousand years and vastly different worlds. Readers will be introduced to love's endlessly fascinating possibilities and extremities: romantic love, platonic love, erotic love, gay love, virginal love, adulterous love, parental love, filial love, nostalgic love, unrequited love, illicit love, not to mention, lost love, twisted and obsessional love...
