How will she ever find a way to fit in? A heartwarming story perfect for the holidays. Written for an unnamed monk, it's what a medieval reader would have called a "letter of consolation," meant to comfort a troubled friend by convincing him that your problems are greater than his.
This early variant of schadenfreude, the so-called "Historia Calamitatum," is how we learn of Abelard's first arrival in Paris, of his growing renown as a teacher and his encounter with the well-educated young Heloise. Here too we learn of Abelard's rash decision to move into her uncle Fulbert's home and become her tutor, of their love and her pregnancy, of Fulbert's rage, Abelard's attempt to pacify him by proposing marriage and Heloise's resistance -- at least in part because of the damage it would do to her lover's reputation.
We learn that Abelard prevailed over his pupil, that the wedding was initially kept secret and that Fulbert ordered a terrible act of vengeance. Days after thugs broke into Abelard's bedroom at night and castrated him, the newlyweds took vows of celibacy and repaired to their respective religious institutions.
The letters written after the "Historia Calamitatum" are the richest, containing the rash, ringing, reckless and altogether impious declarations of love for which Heloise will always be known. Here is a voice that refuses to stay in the Middle Ages; it reaches through the centuries and catches us at the throat. I should be groaning over the sins I have committed, but I can only sigh for what I have lost.
I can expect no reward for this from God, for it is certain that I have done nothing as yet for love of him. I would have had no hesitation, God knows, in following you or going ahead at your bidding to the flames of hell. Love is Heloise's religion, even when she's wrapped in the robes of a nun.

And in the practice of this religion, she is as uncompromising as she is unconventional. For her, love has no business with the law or money or social safety nets. It is for this reason, more than any other, that she opposes Abelard's desire to wed: "I never sought anything in you except yourself.
I looked for no marriage bond. The dust will not settle on such words.

At once intrepid and idealistic, transgressive and submissive, taboo-busting and sweet-natured, noble and naughty, they have seduced scholars for centuries. This woman, this prioress, who was prepared to sacrifice not just earthly reputation but heavenly salvation for the sake of her secular love, is a literary original.
Petrarch couldn't read her without scribbling exclamations in the margins; the three letters to Abelard that have come down to us from her monastic confinement have sufficed to make her name as a writer. Only recently -- and miraculously -- has a new cache of material turned up, fragments of letters that many scholars believe Abelard and Heloise exchanged before Abelard's castration. Copied in the 15th century by a monk named Johannes de Vespria, discovered in by Constant J. Mews and finally published as "The Lost Love Letters of Heloise and Abelard," these short but eloquent missives present two people vying -- with no coyness or gender typecasting whatever -- to outdo each other in expressions of adoration.
The letters have unleashed a new storm of interest in the couple; it is to this that we owe the British filmmaker James Burge's biography, "Abelard and Heloise. Burge spends much time glossing the new correspondence -- unfortunately, trivializing rather than illuminating it. But what's really missing in Burge's biography is an ear for the lyricism of his subjects' correspondence, a feel for the mystery of their bond.
Antoine Audouard's novel "Farewell, My Only One" doesn't draw explicitly on the new letters, but it's substantially truer to their spirit. It also has an ingenious narrative scheme: the story is told from the point of view of a wandering student, William, who falls in love with Heloise at the same time that he becomes Abelard's disciple. When he has outlived both, at the end of the tale, we discover an even closer connection.
Audouard, a former director of the French publisher Laffont-Fixot, evokes in gritty and poetic detail the streets of 12th-century Paris where the narrator tells us he "stumbled over a pig". He's also very good at conveying the process of infatuation: William falls for Heloise when she loses consciousness in a crowd: "I am not strong. I have never carried a woman," he marvels. And yet he does, and even lunges after the flower that has fallen from her hair. But Audouard spends too much time alone with William -- building churches, cleaning grates, making friends -- and we resent being taken away from the lovers.
Then again, anyone writing about Abelard and Heloise must compete with their own eloquence. We also use this information to show you ads for similar films you may like in the future.
