Abstract:

"The contributors to this volume examine a wide range of literary perspectives toward friendship, marriage, adultery, domestic violence, physical and spiritual suffering, individual happiness, the breaking of promises, vows, and oaths because of and in opposition to love, and the destruction of traditional family relations resulting from the almost uncontrollable force of sexuality. But courtly love also proved to be the foundation upon which courtly society could be established. This foundation was, as we now begin to understand, not an absolute, but instead a linguistic, artistic construct, simply called "courtly love.""--Jacket.
