period during which individuals began to emphasize their personal emotional life over public and social considerations To be true to one s feelings and inclinations started to seem more important than social conformity In this new scheme love became a touchstone of personal self realization The aim oflove was to nd not just a socially pro table match but a kindred soul a mirror and an opportunity to realize one s unique personality For this reason the Romantic lover is said to cultivate his emotions at times they seem more important indeed than the beloved The cultural evolution since Romanticism con rms this emphasis on the inner personal life Psychoanalysis modern psychology sexology variously focus on the individual self they seek to free the individual from societal restraints duties morals and the Romantic idea of individual happiness nding it in hedonism sexual ful llment individual happiness etc But can love survive intense individualism Love is sel ess regard and respect for another person whereas the modern individual seems to look for love as a means of self grati cation and sensual consumerism The modern age cannot stop talking about love from self help literature to pop songs But does it believe in it In this course we will read stories that illustrate romantic and postromantic love It puts the lover before a predicament that of being torn between self realization the imperative of modern individualism and self surrender without which there is no love Will love triumph The answer is perhaps found in a revival of spiritual religious love General

not about what you can memorize it is about how well you can defend argue and present your ideas Essay writing is not an opportunity to voice impressions feelings or opinions Opinions are the easiest
