Love Without End
Love Without End: A Story of Heloise and Abelard | Melvyn Bragg
1 post | 1 read
A classic love story, retold for our times. Paris in 1117. Heloise, a brilliant young scholar, is astonished when the famous, radical philosopher, Peter Abelard, consents to be her tutor. But what starts out as a meeting of minds turns into a passionate, dangerous love affair, which incurs terrible retribution. Nine centuries later, Arthur is in Paris to recreate the extraordinary story of Heloise and Abelard in a novel. To his surprise, his daughter visits and agrees to help, challenging his portraits of a couple who seem often inscrutable, sometimes breathtakingly modern. It soon emerges she is on her own mission to discover more about her parents' fractured relationship - and that Arthur's connection to his subject is more emotional than he cares to admit.

Mehso-so

This book was clinical and fairly bland. I only picked it up from the library because I wanted to know more about the historical figures Heloise and Abelard. This fictionalised version of their lives was just ‘meh‘. All I got from it was that Abelard was not a likeable person. That‘s putting it politely 😀
