The Writing of Fiction
The Writing of Fiction2 1 5 Scritto da: Edith Wharton
In 1921, Edith Wharton won a Pulitzer Prize for her first novel, The Age of Innocence, making her the first woman to ever win the prestigious award.
In the pages of The Writing of Fiction Wharton provides insight and general comments on the roots of modern fiction, the various approaches to writing a piece of fiction, and the development of form and style.
Additionally, Wharton devotes entire chapters to the telling of a short story, the construction of a novel, and the importance of character and situation in the novel.
Not only a valuable treatise on the art of writing, The Writing of Fiction also allows readers to experience the inimitable but seldom heard voice of one of America's most important and beloved writers and includes a final chapter on the pros and cons of Marcel Proust.
