COURTLY LOVE


The view of erotic love as a central, life-changing event is a product of high-medieval "courtly love", which championed adulterous love. We read some of the most important works, including the troubadours and the original tale of King Arthur, Lancelot, and Guenevere, as well as a few obscene "anti-courtly" works.

Extra Information: 3 lecture hours, counts towards Medieval Studies module.
