French lovers: from Heloise and Abelard to Beauvoir and Sartre
A bestseller in France, this book traces a wholly original path through Western attitudes towards love from medieval times to our own. The story of liberated Heloise and the ill-fated Abelard begins the journey, and the seemingly modern Sartre and his feminist lover Simone Beauvoir end it.
