Love: A Thematic Sequence of English Units.
Institute for Services to Education, Inc., Washington, DC.
One of a series of volumes containing units on specific themes designed for use in college freshman English courses, this particular volume considers various aspects of love and its emotional impact on people. This sequence is designed to help students improve in reading, writing, and oral expression by exploring the theme of love through a variety of literary works, films, recordings, music, and art. The first of four sections, "Love, Sacred and Profane" provides a general discussion and overview of the various aspects of love. Section 2, "Passion," introduces works illustrating the difficulty of, and problems involved in, expressing love, using the male-female relationship as a model. "Love and the Family" moves from the consideration of love on a strictly interpersonal basis to love within the smallest social unit, emphasizing the different perspectives on reality afforded different members of the family group. The final section, "Love and Society," examines how the society in which one lives not only shapes, and sometimes perverts, the expression of love, but also determines the validity of love as a basis for marital alliance.
