Reviews

The story of Heloise and Abelard remains one of the world's most celebrated and tragic love affairs. Peter Abelard was a 12th-century French philosopher and celebrated logician. He taught in Paris, where Heloise was his pupil. Through their letters, we follow the path of their romance, from its reckless and exstatic beginnings, through the suffering, the public scandal and enforced marriage, to their eventual separation. She then became a nun, he a monk.
