It Came From the Focus List, Part 2

After a meeting with my second reader for my focus exam (who, by the way, concurred with the first reader and said it was a good thesis), I've been recommended a few additional sources to use.

One of them was an article called "Humanitarianism and the Pornography of Pain in Anglo-American Culture."

Oh, you may laugh, to be sure, but think about it--how much sentimental writing do you know that deals with the suffering of the characters portrayed in lush, graphic, and vivid detail?

Doesn't "pain pornography" just aptly describe any Chicken Soup for the Soul book?
