We retells the myth of Tristan and Iseult, one of the earliest romance tales, and uses it as a reference point to explain the essence and meaning of romantic love.  Employing Jungian philosophy, Robert A. Johnson uncovers many of the unconscious beliefs about love shared by both sexes and shows how these attitudes are expressed symbolically in the Tristan myth.  He then breaks down the illusions we often have of love myths in themselves and beautifully redefines what love should and can be.  An elegantly constructed, superior inquiry into the psychology of love.” — AKA Booklist
