'The Female Complaint' is part of Laura Berlant's 'national sentimentality' project, a charting of the emergence of the US political sphere as an affective space of identification and attachment. Here she examines the development of sentimental 'women's culture' in the US, from 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' to 1950s melodramas to chick lit.
