Notes

  • Author's note: (Philosopher Abelard was castrated as punishment for seducing Heloise, a brilliant young intellectual woman. He then renounced their sexual love for the love of God, and required her to do the same.)
  • Epigraph: If only the suffering heart were as ready to obey as the writer's hand. - The Letters of Abelard and Heloise, trans. C. K. Scott-Moncrieff
