Romantic Love in the Western Tradition: cheat sheets

In 1991 I enrolled myself in a required upper division Humanities course that fit into my schedule. This one was called Romantic Love in the Western Tradition. We spent the whole semester reading classic Romantic-era fiction while trying to find some sort of meaning under all the fluffy bullshit. I just found these two 3×5 cards jammed with notes that helped me pass the final.

Included in this material looks to be a few notes on Socrates’ stuff, as well as some of the noteworthy symbolism found in the (yawn) epic Tristan and Isolde. Other than that, I really don’t know what anything here is all about. This class was at 4:15pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, my first class of the day, and, well, I admit was considerably baked for this one every time.
