The conclusion briefly traces the history of anger and gratitude after the end of the Enlightenment. It argues through reference to Romantic literature, illustrated by Baudelaire, and to Tocqueville's Démocratie en Amérique, that with the split between a new mass culture and an intellectual avant-garde in nineteenth-century culture these emotions, while still useful for understanding social interaction, no longer play a crucial role in defining the writer's relationship to the public or to the world in general.
