Please note that this course has started and enrolment is no longer possible.

The Greeks had four words for love; in English we have just one. We consider love in all its forms through a study of key literary texts, from William Blake to D H Lawrence, from Shakespearean tragedy to modern elegy. What does love mean, and how do writers set it down on paper?
