Re: Reflections on The Gryphon/ romanticism and sentimentality

From: stephanie, US


it seems (to me, of course) that the more tragic of any pair is always the romantic figure, and the other the sentimental figure simply by virtue of not being the romantic one. Can anything be romantic without the impending Fall?

But maybe I just read _Wuthering Heights_ too much as an adolescent, and had my heart broken by Heathcliff every time...
