Welcome to All Literary Book Blog Hoppers
I happily return all follows and visits-just leave a comment-
Literary Book Blog Hop-sometimes I admit I feel out of place in a world of YA books, vampire romances and ARC reviews. It is good to meet other people with interests beyond these.
Every Hop we are asked to answer a thought provoking question-this week the question is
Must all literary writing be difficult? Can you think of examples of literary writing that was not difficult?
Just today I posted on three short stories that are for sure examples of literary writing. One by O Henry that is very uncomplicated (and may not be seen as literary by some), one by Sherwood Anderson and one by Guy de Maupassant. None of these stories were "difficult" reads. I am ok with difficult texts if comes from a work of high value that is difficult because it is rich in content. Difficulty should be from the need to communicate much in a few words.
