Item description for All For Love: Seven Centuries of Illicit Liaison by Val Horsler...

For centuries, the vagaries of human passion have moved, amused or scandalized us. Drawing on literary sources as well as personal letters, criminal trials and divorce papers from the National Archives, it uncovers people's real attitudes to sexual transgressions, from the rumbustious 14th century to the 'permissive society' of the 1960s - and much swept under the carpet along the way. Topics include adultery, prostitution, divorce, high-society scandals, homosexuality, wartime romances, the effects of class and religious and the complex - often contradictory - standards imposed on love and sex. Famous and infamous cases, popular ballads and individual stories evoke the very real perils of love that broke the rules - pregnancy, social disgrace, loss of marriagibility, employment and a respectable future. Both a celebration of sexuality and a sober analysis of its consequences, this is a thoughtful, deeply moving guide to our ancestors' hidden desires.
