    schema:reviewBody ""She began their passionate and complex correspondence by calling him " ... her heart's love ..." while he referred to her as " ... the singular joy and only solace of a weary mind." The letters of Heloise and Abelard will remain one of the great, romantic and intellectual documents of human civilization while they, themselves, are probably second only to Romeo and Juliet in the fame accrued by tragic lovers. Living in the abbey of the Paraclete in the12th century, the two poured each others hearts and minds out to each other in a series of letters. Here for the first time in McLaughlin's edition is the complete correspondence with commentary. This book will be a necessity for anyone interested in the medieval period and for those interested in these two touchingly unforgettable figures from the distant past. This book is a companion volume to McLaughlin's study of Heloise, Heloise and the Paraclete."--Jacket." ;
