    I love to read books that are hundreds of years old and found this primer in the art of courtly love completely charming in social contexts of the author s day and the mixed antiquity and continuously applicable essentials of the ideas That said, being that Capellanus was a chaplain, the last passage is clearly meant to confuse and put off his detractors To baffle or dance around what the main text does I like to read the volume as one man who desires to examine lascivious interaction via th I love to read books that are hundreds of years old and found this primer in the art of courtly love completely charming in social contexts of the author s day and the mixed antiquity and continuously applicable essentials of the ideas That said, being that Capellanus was a chaplain, the last passage is clearly meant to confuse and put off his detractors To baffle or dance around what the main text does I like to read the volume as one man who desires to examine lascivious interaction via the raised platform of instruction, even going so far as to discuss a number of scenarios about what possibilities there may be or have been between different classes of lovers and then, at the tail end, putting his robes back on for a final summation that tongue in cheek realigns himself with those for whom he must appear to suit hi...

    Ach Damn you, s and beliefs of the 12th century However much I hated the belief system in The Art of Courtly Love Or, How to Pretend Women have Agency While Giving Them Absolutely None , I actually really enjoyed the writing and dialogue.

    I feel like this quote gives you a good impression of what this book is like blindness is a bar to love, because a blind man cannot see anything upon which his mind can reflect immoderately, and so love cannot arise in him

    Interesting mix of good advice for aspiring courtly lovers dotted with sarcastic jibes at the same people Read for a class on Medieval Culture at UTSA.
