This article discusses the treatment of sentimentality in the fiction of J.M. Barrie, focusing in particular on Tommy and Grizel (1900). It place the discussion in the context of wider debates over sentimentality in Victorian culture and explores the intersection between these and discourse of gender and sexuality in the late nineteenth century.
