Of course, a book that's almost seventy years old isn't exactly at the cutting edge of research. Things move on, even in mediaeval studies,and some of his conclusions have their critics. Still,
This made me curious and decided to read some literature on courtly love, dating, etiquette and what not then i stumbled across THE ALLEGORY OF LOVE by C.S. Lewis. I must say after reading the sample i straight away decided to buy this book and read further and from that day since i have not regretted it. Its a wonderful book very insightful and logical. It presents the whole idea of courtly love on a background of Christianity and just plain logic, 1 + 1 = 2. Its a lovely book. I love it.
