The group of romans antiques comprises the romans of Thèbes, Eneas, Troie and Alexandre, and the poems of Piramus et Tisbé and Narcisus. These works have two points in common: they all deal with material from Greek or Roman antiquity, and they all fall within the twelfth century. Jones studies the way in which the love theme has been treated in each of these works, the draws together the separate threads to see if it is possible to define a concept of love which may be common to all the romans antiques.
