As one of the most inﬂuential texts on love for nearly two hundred years, the De amore is an apt text to consider before turning to early modern romance. For the complex erotic psychology of romance is undoubtedly informed by the uneasy interpenetration of medical and literary traditions that Ficino’s text both illustrates and perpetuates.

Although Du Laurens, like Ferrand, favors a pragmatic physiological explanation of the symptoms of the disease, he also concedes, again perhaps following Aristotle, that the “strange imaginations” of melancholics may exceed the reach of physiological analysis: Finally, we observe and ﬁnde such strange imaginations in some melancholike men, as cannot be referred either to the complexion of the bodie, or to their condition of life: the cause thereof remaineth unknowne, it seemeth to be some secret mysterie.

Thus it believes some woman to be better and more noble and more desirable than all others” (Gerard of Berry, Notule super Viaticum, cited above).
