Summary
The nineteenth-century French master combined personal comment and detached analysis in this exploration of the aspects, stages, and varieties of love, particularly passionate, romantic, unrequited love, and the imagination's power to transfigure love's object and energies. (view table of contents)
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Drawing on history, literature, and his own experience of unrequited passion, Love is a thinly disguised picture of the author's innermost feelings.

Stendahl's obsession with Mathilde Viscontini Dembowski is at the heart of this book. For her part, she neither returned his love nor understood him. In an attempt to expain his feelings to her—and to exorcize his love—he dissects his passion. Bringing together the conflicting sides of his nature, the deeply emotional and the coolly analytical, Stendhal constructed a work that is both acutely personal and universally applicable.
