In this work, Elaine Baruch explores the different forms of love both past and present and particularly romantic love, and the ways these forms have given women power or deprived them of it. Utilizing both Freudian and non-Freudian psychoanalysis as well as feminist criticism, Baruch investigates literary works from the Middle Ages, the Romantic period, and the 19th and 20th centuries, and also presents her observations of recent cultural developments.
