Esteem enlivened by desire : the couple from Homer to Shakespeare by Jean H Hagstrum( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While he considers relevant social history, theological and philosophical formulations, mythology, and holy writ, Hagstrum's emphasis on works of the imagination allows him to focus on this concept as it was developed over time, often in opposition to restrictive social realities. Literature and art thus help us imagine new worlds and open up possibilities for human nature. As an enduring imaginative achievement, the association of esteem with sexual desire offers a complex and changing pattern that Hagstrum explores through many texts, some of which prompt intensive new reading: the Homeric epics, the Oresteia, Ovid's Metamorphoses, the Greek romances, Augustine's Confessions, the Decameron, the Marriage Group of the Canterbury Tales, the comedies of Shakespeare
