Love Without End: A Story of Heloise and Abelard

Lord Bragg is one of our best-known and most respected broadcasters. Love Without End is his new novel about one of the most remarkable love stories in history – the passionate, enduring romance between two of the greatest scholars of the 12th century – and its resonance in the 21st century. Heloise is a reputed to be the cleverest woman in France and arrives in Paris bent on entering into its masculine world of learning. Thwarted, she is astonished when the brilliant, radical philosopher, Peter Abelard, consents to be her tutor.

 

I’ve been coming to the Buxton Literary Festival for most of its 40 years of existence.  A beautiful town, lovely theatre, warm and intelligent audience – what more could any writer want?  Much look forward to it in this anniversary year.‘ – Melvyn Bragg
