Product Description

The Allegory of Love is a landmark study of a powerful and influential medieval conception. C.S. Lewis explores the sentiment called 'courtly love' and the allegorical method within which it developed in literature and thought, from its first flowering in eleventh-century Languedoc through to its transformation and gradual demise at the end of the sixteenth centuty. Lewis devotes particular attention to major poems, The Romance of the Rose and The Faerie Queen, and to poets including Chaucer, Gower and Thomas Usk.

Endorsements

"The tremendous amount of information, the brilliance of the ideas, the felicitous phrasing and almost delightful style, all combine to make this a really outstanding contribution to medieval studies." -Modern Language Notes

"Out of the multitude of volumes on literary criticism, there arises once or twice in a generation a truly great work. Such, I believe, is this study by Mr. C.S. Lewis." -The Observer
