Abstract

In attempting to "capture the feel" of the movement, and succeed mainly in drenching the story in a kind of soppy emotionalism whose images and language seem better suited to a soap opera. Maudlin expressions like "that magical night," "people shed their reticence like unwanted clothing" and the "shining new era of tolerance" permeate the text.
