This book offers an amusing but erudite look at the world of love and romance.
Romantic author Eve Devereux explores what these words mean and what they meant in other times and to other civilisations; she tells us about engagement and marriage customs and practices throughout history, delves into the world of aphrodisiacs and seduction, lists key gods and goddesses of love and fertility. She tells us the most important facts about the most famous and interesting romantic artists and authors and gives snippets of amusing and sometimes astonishing information about the subject which facinates everyone.
Love, n. A temporary insanity curable by marriage or by removal of the patient from the influences under which he incurred the disorder. The disease, like caries, is prevalent only among civilized races living under artificial conditions.
- Ambrose Bierce, The Devil's Dictionary, 1906
