The Reinvention of Love in the Twentieth Century

In Great Writers, Great Loves, Ann-Marie Priest delves deep into the love lives of eight twentieth-century writers and shows how, in the tumult and novelty of their intimate relationships, they radically transformed our ideas of romantic love.

From D.H. Lawrence and Virginia Woolf to Charmian Clift, Sylvia Plath and Frank O'Hara, these writers seized the freedom to experiment. In exploring new ideas of sexuality, marriage, same-sex relationships and passionate friendships, they forged a darker, richer, more complex mythology of romantic love than the one that preceded it.

Bringing to life some of the most compelling personalities of the last century, their private passions and obsessions, Great Writers, Great Loves sheds new light on passion, intimacy and the way we think about love today.
