it was amazing

Vivian Gornick makes the point that love as a life changing, all or nothing experience has been diluted by the ease of divorce and recoupling. Since divorce and remarriage are socially accepted neither Anna nor Emma would be taking the same life shattering risks today. She cites various novels about divorce today and realizes that while she is upset for the characters she isn't likely to have the experience of tragedy in reading today.
