Heloise and Abelard - Since the 12th century writers, artists, and musicians have been inspired by the details of their story-famous philosopher and his pupil, forbidden love affair, abandoned son, castration, monastic life, and heresy trials. In this remarkable collection Judith Infante gives us a series of poems that form a verse novel about the medieval lovers. The poems make clear how bound was their relationship to its period, yet capture the intensity of their timeless and conflicting emotions.
