I'm about a third of the way through, and greatly enjoying the way this fits with other reading I have done this year.
Obviously, from the very beginning Greek thought, Arabic culture is a big help. Although, luckily I'm finding this book a lot easier to read than that one was.
I've just picked up references that match with a good ER I read about The Normans.
Got the thread starred, but I've got a couple more to finish before I start this one.
It looks to me like there may be connection to Four Queens and I have The arts of intimacy waiting to be read when this is done, so I have a lot of books connected to this one.
For those who haven't started yet - this reads very smoothly, at least for me it doesn't expect that I know a lot that I don't. So far I'm also not having trouble keeping various people apart.
The other thing this book has is pictures. I should say 'illustrations' as there are also many examples of poetry, printed in both the original and translation. Good, the Arabic doesn't help me at all, and the Hebrew not much more, but I can get some idea of the sound of the poetry from the various romantic languages.
