Offered through Schola Humanistica
The end of a love story is an experience felt deeply by anyone who has passed through one. In these sessions we will focus on texts by two important authors who address this topic: we will discuss Catullus and how he approached writing about the end of his affair with Lesbia. We will then proceed to the advice of a cunning lover who, describing his techniques to fall out of love in the Remedia Amoris, does not cease to shock the reader, at times for the originality of his suggestions, and at other times for the remarkable freshness with which he describes experiences common to humankind regardless of time period.
