The Art of Loving

ENG 295

Info tab content
Love is a many splendored thing. Love is dangerous. Love is a drug. Love is carnal ecstasy. Love is a subject of art, while loving well is an art in itself. Many experiences, emotions, actions, and ideals travel under the name of romantic love. This course will contrast the wild and wide depictions of romance in fiction, poetry, letters, myth, and other mediums: from medieval courtiers to modern blues musicians, from ecstatic sonnets to yearning love letters. Why do we worship and worry about this singular feeling? What do the different forms and phases of love's passions have to tell us about being human?
