Love and Language

; Veronica Albin

«<p>“In this lively, erudite conversation Stavans ranges over literature, etymology, philosophy, mythology, and sexuality. The heart of his investigation is how language is used to convey emotion, and how literature is 'a form of empathy' and 'inspired testimony' that connects us with the human experience. Stavans generously shares not only his considerable learning, but his own experience, making this book a unique exploration of love and language.”—Fred R. Shapiro, Editor, <i>Yale Book of Quotations </i></p><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p></p><p></p> »
