Heloise and Abelard — Since the 12th century writers, artists, and musicians have been inspired by the details of their story—famous philosopher and his pupil, forbidden love affair, abandoned son, castration, monastic life, and heresy trials. In this remarkable collection Judith Infante gives us a series of poems that form a verse novel about the medieval lovers. The poems make clear how bound was their relationship to its period, yet capture the intensity of their timeless and conflicting emotions. Heloise and Abelard became different people as their story moved from romance to life apart and finally to their individual deaths and the mysterious change that implies. By interweaving Ovid’s myth of Atalanta with the story of Heloise and Abelard, Love, A Suspect Form calls attention to the many and often disorienting aspects we present to each other.
