This volume considers the origins of the love letter and the
passion for writing it during the 18th and 19th centuries. It
examines the conditions for writing and reading love letters, and
their modalities and techniques, which led to the development of a
unique culture of love letters in day-to-day communication and in
their corresponding artistic and literary forms. Both well-known
exchanges of letters and others that have until now been largely
untapped document the creation of an emphatic model of love and
private life. The work thus provides valuable insights into the
cultural practice of documenting feelings.
