So throw away that Viagra and read a book! Love 27 The Romantic Lover Finally, we come to Romanticism, the great modern watershed of eros. Beginning in the eighteenth century with Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the Romantic writers try to find a modern replacement for the almost van­ ished traditions of chivalry.

If you tip the guide at Pompeii, he’ll show you rooms not usually included in the tour that depict an as­ tonishing range of imaginative sexual diversions and positions unlikely to occur to an Episcopalian such as myself. The Pompeians, it appears, were robustly interested in having a good romp. But the idea that a seri­ ous man would lose himself emotionally in a love affair, thereby neglect­ ing his more important political ambitions, business interests, and drive to advance the fortunes and status of his family and clan, was considered a form of “madness,” as the Stoic moralists put it when discussing exces­ sive eros.
