What is the most conservative love story ever told?

Here is a symposium, courtesy of National Review.  Do they understand any of these books, most of all the extreme perversity of Tolstoy?  Jane Austen is praised for not having a kiss in the entire book.  Maybe the Song of Solomon works as a pickFree to Choose wasn’t a bad selection either, or try their Two Lucky People.  Don’t they know that Rick sets up Ilsa at the end of Casablanca, just so her can reject her as an act of spite and malice?  How about Romain Rolland’s Jean-Christophe?  Goethe’s Hermann und Dorothea?  Make your other selections in the comments, but the rapes in Atlas Shrugged rule that one out.  Thanks to www.politicaltheory.info for the pointer.
