The nine essays in this volume explore some aspects of the passions and explore the role of the passions in various contexts: in ancient Greek society and in the concept of tragedy; in the Arabian Nights; in Petrarch; in seventeenth-century France; in Pushkin; in Gide's assessment and reappraisal of French Classical Tragedy; in the poet Guillevic's interpretation of the Breton landscape; and within the theology of the Christian church.
