Percy Byssche Shelley's poem, Epipsychidion, is quoted in full in this novel, its stanzas interspersed between chapters to embellish the themes of the story. The author calls it the greatest treatment of love in English poetry. In its 600 lines, Shelley considers virtually every approach to erotic love: Platonic, romantic, altruistic, idyllic, domestic, exclusive, non-exclusive, orgiastic, idealistic, self-indulgent, and self-sacrificing.
