More Romance, less Romanticism
edited by Jim Haynes

47 pages, 21 x 15 cm
 

Concerning "Romance" and "Romanticism":
Romance is the natural culmination of curiosity, of caring for another. It means fulfilling one's desires in the here and now.
Romanticism is a dream-like state where one constantly seeks a "perfect love", somewhere, and at some future date./.../ I feel that romanticism is the major cause of pain and unhappiness. The aim of this book is to combat romanticism and to encourage romance. /.../ Romanticism is a kind of living-death. Let's overcome romanticism before it kills us all.
