About this book

This book re-evaluates the perception of "courtly love" in Old French verse. Adams traces how these verses explore the emotional trials of amour and propose coping methods for the lovelorn.

"[Adam's] attempt to locate these romantic explorations of amor within the 12th-century's fascination with problematic love is laudable and instructive." - Encomia
