Deidre Pribram - Notes continued - describes them as eighteenth-century synonyms. In Keywords, Raymond Williams notes that it is only with the nineteenth century that ‘sentimental’ takes on the meaning, to feel excessively or to indulge one’s emotions. ‘Sensibility’ largely escaped this negative connotation in the nineteenth century, although it was increasingly relegated to describe one cultural arena only: the field of aesthetics (1985, 282). 3 For more information on Williams’ analysis of structure of feeling, see Harding and Pribram, 2009; 2004.
