"Our understanding of love today is not the same as the one espoused by Plato in the fourth century B.C.E. Nor is it the same as the courtly love of the Renaissance, or love as defined by Stendhal or Proust or Freud. In this utterly original book, cultural critic Ilan Stavans engages in an exhilarating dialogue with Veronica Albin about love and its various manifestations. Roaming through millennia, across geographical boundaries, and from culture to culture."--BOOK JACKET.
