Love and language

Our understanding of love is not the same as the one espoused by Plato in the fourth century BCE. Nor is it the same as the courtly love of the Renaissance, or love as defined by Stendhal or Proust or Freud. Here, cultural critic Ilan Stavans engages in a dialogue with Veronica Albin about love and its various manifestations.
