Love in Geoffrey Chaucer's 'Parliament of Fowles' and 'The Book of the Duchesse'
A 14 page research paper that argues that love plays a pivotal thematic role in two of Geoffrey Chaucer's greatest poems, The Book of the Duchesse and The Parliament of Fowles. While Chaucer is acknowledged as one of the greatest and most eloquent advocates of love in English literature, in these poems, he qualified his endorsement and dedication to love by placing it within certain institutional and societal boundaries. In The Book of the Duchesse, his elegy of consolation over the death of the Black Knight's lady is couched within the parameters established by the conventions of courtly love. Likewise, while the Parliament of Fowles is a love poem, Chaucer pictures love as susceptible to certain natural laws that should be meticulously followed. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
Love as Perceived by Sigmund Freud
A 5 page discussion of Freud’s views of the emotion we call love. Freud viewed this emotion as just one more manifestation of the sexual drive with which we are born. This paper contends that, under the Freudian view, adult sexuality was synonymous with the emotion we call love. To him, therefore, love was simply an extension of those same feelings we first experience in childhood. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
