Lewis - Romantic Love

French poets, in the 11th century, discovered or invented, or were the first to express, that romantic species of passion which English poets were still writing about in the 19th. They effected a change which has left no corner of our ethics, our imagination, or our daily life untouched … Compared with this revolution, the Renaissance is a mere ripple.
- C. S. Lewis, The Allegory of Love
