Anne Carson?s remarkable first book about the paradoxical nature of romantic love

Since it was first published, Eros the Bittersweet, Anne Carson?s lyrical meditation on love in ancient Greek literature and philosophy, has established itself as a favorite among an unusually broad audience, including classicists, essayists, poets, and general readers. Beginning with the poet Sappho?s invention of the word ?bittersweet? to describe Eros, Carson?s original and beautifully written book is a wide-ranging reflection on the conflicted nature of romantic love, which is both ?miserable? and ?one of the greatest pleasures we have.?
