Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Thirty-nine selections are grouped into four sections, two of which comprise established writings on love, from Plato and Sappho to some modern feminists and critics of love. The other two consist of new essays by contemporary thinkers--many of them solicited for this volume; some discuss the texts presented in the first two sections, while others represent new attempts to define and understand love.
