Sentimentality (SM) has been a recurring form of cultural narrative that has helped to shape middle-class Amer life. Literary SM, in the form of poetry, is the written trace of a broad cultural discourse that Kete calls “sentimental collaboration” (SC) -- an exchange of sympathy in the form of gifts that estab. common cultural or intellectual ground.
