The Lover's Watch by Aphra Behn
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A charming and witty volume of instruction for the aspiring lover, detailing hour by hour the correct way to spend a day apart. Iris is well aware of the hours of reflection and sighing due to her as a beautiful and sought-after woman, as well as the dangers and temptations that await a man whose lover is absent. Thus the hour between eight and nine, before Damon is enjoined to rise, may be spent in 'Agreeable Reverie', of which the principle subject is, of course, Iris, whilst five o'clock is the hour of 'Dangerous Visits' when Damon will be a prey to the wiles and machinations of his female acquaintances. Interspersed with beautiful - and instructive - verses, The Lover's Watch is a sharp-witted and ironic observation of the universal manners of love, and an indispensable manual for all eager suitors.
