If Rowson were looking for a fictional model that had already inspired this kind of ardor, she could have found none better than the legend of Inkle and Yarico, which largely owed its popularity to what Felsenstein calls its "relatively uncurbed expression of human passion." It aroused in its auditors "sensations and feelings that they might in other circumstances be only too inclined to suppress," writes Felsenstein, adding, "It was acceptable to weep at the plight of Yarico, whereas elsewhere such venting of emotion would risk being condemned as unmanly or overdelicate" (33).
