By Lauren Berlant. Avid readers of theorist Lauren Berlant will be pleased as her latest book, The Female Complaint, continues her ongoing project of charting national sentimentality in U. Berlant, however, engages with a different sort of commodity: literature and subsequent film and stage adaptations that are arguably emblematic of the twentieth century, including Showboat, The King and I, Imitation of Life, and A Star is Born, for the sentimental messages they project toward women.

The dimensions of the female complaint are best illuminated in chapters 5, 6, and 7. In the literary and film texts explored by Berlant, women are compelled into romantic love relations. These relationships, however, are not at all the utopic fantasies for which the female characters hoped.

Women feel commonality—despite differently classed and raced positionalities—because all women are hailed with the affliction of surviving love. Here normalcy is marketed as what one should be and do to live through love. The political implications of all of this sentimentality Access options available:.

Berlant acknowledges a side of identity that I agree is important: the possibility that identity performance can be imitation and salve rather than innovation and salvation. Berlant is interested in genres of "female complaint," ruptures in melodramatic or conventional texts that indicate the insufficiency of feminine types and heteronormative narratives to encompass a satisfactory version of identity.

The Female Complaint: The Unfinished Business of Sentimentality in American Culture

To love a thing is not only to embrace its most banal iconic forms, but to work those forms so that individuals and populations can breathe and thrive in them or in proximity to them. The convention is not only a mere placeholder for what could be richer in an underdeveloped social imaginary, but it is also sometimes a profound placeholder that provides an affective confirmation of the idea of a shared confirming imaginary in advance of inhabiting a material world in which that feeling can actually be lived. When a success, this is called reciprocity. The sentimental bargain of femininity… receives her own value back not only in the labor of recognition she performs but in the sensual spectacle of its impacts. In this discursive field the emotional labor of women places them at the center of the story of what counts as life, regardless of what lives women actually live: the conjuncture of family and romance so structures the emergence of modern sexuality, with its conflation of sexual and emotional truths, and in that nexus femininity marks the scene of the reproduction of life as a project… to be proximate to this story of emotional centrality.
