This is a 24-page analysis of love on different levels as presented in Medieval literature. Love was passionate, sincere, pure, and Platonic, and each writer chose a different form of expression. For some readers, it is astonishing that such writing was not banned at the time. It simply represented "the spirit of the times." This is appropriate for college lectures on Medieval Literature. Chaucer quotes are written in Old English, Dante translated to English, and Ruiz in both Spanish and English.
