The horror of our history has purged me of opinions.More John Barth quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't see how anybody starts a novel without knowing how it's going to end. I usually make detailed outlines: how many chapters it will be and so forth.More John Barth quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The story of your life is not your life; it's your story.More John Barth quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Printed prose is historically a most peculiar, almost an aberrant way of telling stories, and by far the most inherently anesthetic: It is the only medium of art I can think of which appeals directly to none of our five senses. The oral and folk tradition in narrative made use of verse or live-voice dynamics, embellished by gesture and expression--a kind of rudimentary theater--as do the best raconteurs of all times. Commonly there was musical accompaniment as well: a kind of one-man theater-of-mixed-means.More John Barth quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
