PINHO, Miriam Ximenes. "Happy love bears no history": notes about courteous love and impossibility. Stylus (Rio J.) [online]. 2015, n.31, pp. 187-193. ISSN 1676-157X.

This study aims to investigate the experience of love by way of one of his avatars, courtly love, a gentle love, full of amenities and gentlemanly rules in which the lover endures all things by his Lady, a divinized and unreachable woman. The courteous novel is an unhappy love marked by obstacles and suffering. Lacan decanted/disenchanted its devices at different times of his work. I'm particularly interested in courtly love's principle of impossibility, so often emphasized. What is the status of this impossibility? Is it the very impossibility that affects every type of love, even the eternal one? To achieve this goal, Seminars 7, 20 and 21 were examined as well as a romance of chivalry, Tristan and Isolde, that served to illustrate some of the considerations presented here.

Palavras-chave : Love; Courtly love; Impossibility; Lacan.
