a humour of love‘I stared at the page of ‘A Humour of Love’ for several days trying to figure out a decision. I thought about my current work which occasionally figures men who have abused children or are coming close to doing so. Society condemns sexual acts with children quite rightly and predators often justify their acts as love. But this form of love is that termed by Shakespeare: it is a ‘humour of love’, an apparent feeling and not the real thing. It deliberately chooses to give up all restraint and that is what makes it actually loveless, simply a manipulation.’
