As described by Shakespeare in A Midsummer Night's Dream (1590s): Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.Nor hath love's mind of any judgement taste; Wings and no eyes figure unheedy haste.During the English Renaissance, Christopher Marlowe wrote of "ten thousand Cupids"; in Ben Jonson's wedding masque Hymenaei, "a thousand several-coloured loves ... Cupid is winged, allegedly, because lovers are flighty and likely to change their minds, and boyish because love is irrational.

Cupid continued to be a popular figure in the Middle Ages, when under Christian influence he often had a dual nature as Heavenly and Earthly love.

Before the existence of gender dichotomy, Eros functioned by causing entities to separate from themselves that which they already contained.

At the same time, the Eros who was pictured as a boy or slim youth was regarded as the child of a divine couple, the identity of whom varied by source.

He was among the primordial gods who came into existence asexually; after his generation, deities were begotten through male-female unions.

In Hesiod's Theogony, only Chaos and Gaia (Earth) are older.
