In this landmark study of Love and its meaning, the celebrated arbiter elegantiae Maximus Confessor+ looks at Love in the world and in the human heartÂ—from the exudations of hate which lures mankind to a self-induced living Hell, to the compassion of goodness in the real world. Maximus Confessor+ interprets the movements of the heart as it holds others in Love. And with fresh new insights he shows us the real power of Love and its declaration over others. "Those who truly love are the happiest of mortals." So speaks the Confessor+. He is said to be fascinated with Love and its power in all variations and culminations. The surface of his prose glitters with coruscations; it blazes with pyrotechnic ideas and original concepts. The power of LoveÂ—fascinating.
