Episode Summary

Love In Literature
Learn about the history of love in literature, as discussed by a variety of contemporary authors and critics. From the difficulties of rhyming the word 'love' in poetry, to a look at the psychology of love and romance. Love affairs have altered and sometimes destroyed the course of events, in fiction and in life, and this powerful theme is explored in medieval literature right through to 'Bridget Jones's Diary.' Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' is discussed as one of the most popular and enduring love stories of our time, amongst other classic works.moreless
