The intricate relationship between the erotic and the literary is a recurring theme in Western literature, with a starting-point in Plato's dialogues. Our need to talk, write, and read about love has resulted in a rich tradition, ranging from theoretical and philosophical discussions of Eros to love romance and poetry, clearly marked by the classical-heritage but continuously unfolding and rewriting itself. This present volume aims at providing both students and scholars with a series of discussions of this long tradition of reading and writing the erotic, seen from a number of different perspectives. A certain emphasis is placed on Classical Philology, but other contributors represent Byzantine studies, Iranian languages, History of ideas, and Comparative literature. 292pp.
