This collection entitled, “Essays in Love for Sentimental Reasons” is a compilation of personal expressions of love that everyone may have had in his/her lifetime. And in such instances, he or she has learned and has taken part in the many facets of love. Except for those essays that are based on historical and real life accounts, this collection is purely creation of the imagination of the writer and if it happens to be similar to anyone’s, it is purely incidental. “Experience is the best teacher”, as they say. Expressions of love are exquisite if they are conveyed in beautiful language. They provide stinging sensations that will stimulate the hearts of men. Try to explore this yourself.

"[In this book]...believers in the value of reasoning will find themselves in very hospitable territory, where they will have the pleasure on confronting ideas that are defined with argument, and to which, should they on occasion disagree with one or the other of them, they will always feel that nothing less than a carefully reasoned response is called for. And that is the highest praise that I can think of for its author. Like Socrates, he is in love with reason; and like Socrates, he finds that other lovers of reason sense a kindred spirit and engage." Thomas M. Robinson, University of Toronto.

In this collection literary scholars, theorists and historians deploy new economic techniques to illuminate English Renaissance literature in fresh ways. Contributors variously explore poetry's precarious perch between gift and commodity; the longing for family in The Comedy of Errors as symbolically expressing the alienating pressures of mercantilism; Measure for Measure 's representation of singlewomen and the feminization of poverty; the collision between two views of money in a possible collaboration between Shakespeare and Middleton; the cultural spread of an accounting mentality and quantitative thinking; and money as it crosses the frontier between price and pricelessness, and from early bodily-injury insurance schemes to The Merchant of Venice .
