The Art of Loving

앞표지
Pustak Mahal, 2007 - 120페이지
Love, like faith, is said to move mountains. Indeed, one man s love for Helen of Troy led to the launch of a thousand warships and a ten-year war between the Greeks and the Trojans. Although the passionate moments of love are always heady, the aftermath can also be tragic, since both are inseparable elements of the same coin. While one and all would welcome love s throbbing passion, we are all wary of its searing flame. Therefore, the book is profusely peppered with examples of Cupid s copious arrows that have felled monarchs and common folk, princes and paupers, seers and seekers, writers and readers. And it is not just men who have done the chasing in man s oldest sport. The book also narrates instances where women have pined for, wined, dined and chased men!

14 페이지 - Scarce show a harvest of their heavy toil : But love, first learned in a lady's eyes, Lives not alone immured in the brain ; But, with the motion of all elements, Courses as swift as thought in every power, And gives to every power a double power, Above their functions and their offices.
9 페이지 - Subtle as Sphinx; as sweet and musical As bright Apollo's lute, strung with his hair; And, when Love speaks, the voice of all the gods Makes heaven drowsy with the harmony.
