BiblioFiles Episode #14: Love Stories and Romantic Literature
We're pretty much all softies around here at CenterForLit. We just can't resist a good love story! But what is it that makes a good love story? And even more tricky: how is it possible that a happy fairy tale and the depressing Anna Karenina are equally important in developing our imagination of love? And what about marriage? Which authors do a good job of honestly conversing with us about what happens after Prince Charming sweeps Cinderella off her feet? What is love? Baby don't hurt us by missing this fun episode of BiblioFiles!
