†††† ďTristam ShandyĒ by Laurence Sterne is sentiment par excellence, and it is matched in spirit by ďSentimental Journey,Ē a shorter work by the same author.† Extremely popular at the time of its publication, its star has declined considerably, but it is still an icon to all who still cling to the bourgeois value of sentiment.
†††† Karl Marx probably would not have written his ďCommunist ManifestoĒ if he had read the sentimental e-cards of passionup.com. Overwhelmed by bourgeois sentiment, he would have abandoned his campaign to abolish marriage; and instead of urging class warfare, his prolific pen would have poured forth emotional pamphlets with heartfelt words of tender romance.
†††† Yield to tender sentiment as you read the secret notes and other longer selections contained in the sentimental e-cards of passionup.com.
