The Greeks had four words for love; in English we have just one. In this course we consider love in all its forms spiritual, filial, erotic and platonic - 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? (Not to be taken with Ga2 in Literature Term I.)
