Love in Print in the Sixteenth Century
"Love in Print in the Sixteenth Century" explores the impact of print on conflicting cultural notions about romantic love in the 16th century. This popularization of romantic love led to profound transformations in the rhetoric, ideology and social function of love — transformations that continue to shape cultural notions about love today.
