Top 10 Great Books About Unrequited Love
So much of fiction is about desire, a yearning of some kind or another … the love of reading itself a sort of intense affair. My book is a comedy: Evan and his friends make me smile. But these amusements are underpinned by some serious thinking about love stories and the meaning of fiction in our lives, with the following titles topping my list of inspirational work on that subject. The Canzoniere by Petrarch For a start, I had Petrarch in mind, and his great love for the year-old Laura, who the poet glimpsed coming out of church in and spent the rest of his life thinking about in the sequence of poems he wrote for her. The Divine Comedy by Dante Dante follows hard on his heels, of course, and was writing before him — his Divine Comedy a kind of early novel, as I think of it, in three parts, that was inspired by a similar kind of experience. Dante never knew his Beatrice either, yet the idea of her propelled his great work about visiting Hell and Purgatory and Heaven, to be met there by her: another fantasy made true in words.
