Summary expansion
The work, originally written in Latin between 1494 and 1496, is arranged in six books: the first provides a survey of other writers and poets who have written about love, including chapters on Cavalcante, Dante, Petrarch, Barberini, boccaccio, Ficino, Pico della Mirandola, Bembo, and the "Roman de la rose"; the fifth contrasts love with hate, and includes quotations from Greek and latin poets on the relationship of the two emotions
