Love in the Western World by Denis de Rougemont( Book )

345 editions published between 1939 and 2019 in 9 languages and held by 2,950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second edition reproduces the whole of the original French text. It has been revised by the author and includes fresh material, in particular the section dealing with the Cathars, the troubadours and the Tristan legend has been largely rewritten, and de Rougemont regards this as the heart of the present version. There is also a new chapter based on the author's observations during his residence in the United States. It has been described as "The History of the Rise and Fall of the Love Affair." The problem with which the book deals is one that stands at the very heart of our lives. Its theme is a paradox presented by the universal acceptance of marriage on the one hand, and on the other hand the enthralling attraction of romance and passionate love that is outside marriage and socially and legally frowned upon. It begins by an examination of the legend of Tristan and Isolde, its origins in folklore, its developments in medieval literature, its relation to the Doctrine of Love of the Provençal poets, its exploitation by Wagner. It compares the erotic language of Oriental poetry with that of Europe, and examines the parallels between human passion and mystical experience. It examines the difference between figures such as Don Juan and the Marquis de Sade, and discusses such matters as our contemporary attitude toward divorce, the Hollywood Ideal, eugenics, and the substitution of collective passion for individual passion in the totalitarian urge toward war. In conclusion, the de Rougemont points to the final degradation of the myth and gives his verdict in favor of marriage--From publisher description
