    Julia Kristeva explores the theme of love in her book Tales of Love (1987). The recurring thought in the book is love as a type of love philosophy. Love is defined as an endless search for new births through the experience of love. The language of love, says Kristeva, is impossible; it is a language of metaphors and literature. She says it is only possible to speak about love in first-person singular. According to Kristeva, love is the most intensive sign and most explicit hymn of narcissistic power in which a person sacrifices love but in reality sacrifices themselves. She poses a rhetorical question whether we are speaking about the same thing when speaking about love. She says that, in the ecstasy of love, the boundaries of one’s own identity disappear, whereas in a conversation about love the accuracy and meaning are blurred. For her, love is the most powerful expression of truth and eternity. Moreover, when someone is in love, they become real, strong, subjective and ethical because they are willing to do anything for another person. At the same time, this person discovers the boundaries and the powerlessness of language. Please provide page references for Kristeva’s ideas (according to our stylesheet).
