This anthology will enchant both the ordinary reader and the connoisseur. Its contents reveal the extraordinary diversity of English behaviour and sentiment under the stress of Love as depicted by writers from the moral Gower of the 14th century to the moralists, Havelock┬Ľ Ellis, D. H. Lawrence and Aldous Huxley, of our own times. It takes the great and the lesser Victorians in its stride, and from the opening section, "Love at First Sight," through" Suits and Scenes," " Love In Wedlock," "Philanderers," etc., to the appropriate conclusion" Love After Death," humour, conscious and unconscious, lights the way. The majority of the pieces have not previously been collected. As the editors hint in their introduction, those who expect to find here pieces which they like to think they know by heart, will probably be disappointed.
