In response to The End of the Novel of Love, written by Cassia on October 29, 1997 at 19:06:22
] How could love become to weak an element to drive a novel? Does this mean that our hearts no longer matter? That we are what we eat, buy, own? Is there no more room for the sublime emotions in the world?
Cassia, I think I have read a review of this too, and I am as puzzled about it as you seem. I actually suspect it is crap, though fashionable crap! It may be harder for people to recognise, experience, and write about the 'sublime emotions' these days, but that doesn't mean that they don't exist!
This links back to the narrative thread, which I have just posted in, BTW. The qotes from Possession are from p423 in my hardback version...Ch 23.
