6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Medieval Venuses and Cupids analyzes the transformations of the love deities in later Middle English Chaucerian poetry, academic Latin discourses on classical myth (including astrology, natural philosophy, and commentaries on classical Roman literature), and French conventions that associate Venus and Cupid with Ovidian arts of love. Whereas existing studies of Venus and Cupid contend that they always and everywhere represent two loves (good and evil), the author argues that medieval discourses actually promulgate diverse, multiple, and often contradictory meanings for the deities. Venus is understood simultaneously as a planet, as a historical woman (a prostitute, a lustful woman, or a queen), and as a symbol of philosophical or spiritual truths (the dangers of cupidity, the joys of sexual pleasure, or the bonds of love that unify the cosmos). Cupid similarly is depicted as both male and female, blind and sighted, child and adult, playful and sinister, angelic and demonic
