Star-Crossed Love

Tried-and-True Dating Advice from Classic Literature

by Courtney Gorter
This humorous, snarky guide to dating and love, inspired by characters and authors from classic literature, will help you navigate the ins and outs of today’s ever-more crazy dating scene with aplomb.

Traversing the mystifying swampland that is today’s dating scene requires a guide. Forget your BFF—no one knows the ins and outs of love in all its star-crossed glory quite like characters from the great classics. The hopeless romantic in a Shakespeare play. The charming heroine in a Jane Austen novel. The ill-fated dreamer in pretty much anything by F. Scott Fitzgerald. You’ll find sage advice and everything you need to know about romance and relationships—from flirting to the honeymoon phase, rocky roads to domestic bliss—courtesy of all the classic characters we know and love (and some we love to hate).
