Compare this paragraph with the speech of Agathon in Plato's Symposium (here quoted in P. B. Shelley's translation): "Love is the divinity who creates peace among men . . . ."
And see P. B. Shelley's fragment, "Love, the Universe" ("love is god"), as well as his essay "On Love," which Mary Shelley edited and published.
