Literary Blogging


Since, as we all now know, Troppo is home to lovers of literature, I’d urge you all to visit Catallaxy where two posts are of interest. Andrew discusses the importance of the opening line in written expression, which has led to some great examples in comments, and Jason has a thread on the Devine Miss M, which has segued into a discussion of the writing style of op/ed columnists. And Thomas Hardy, for all that David has an ambivalent view of his writing, is fast becoming a continuing theme at Barista with posts here, here and here (linked in order of most recent post).

And, don’t forget – the Troppo poll on formative fiction closes Sunday. And I’ll put another plug in for an excellent book blog, Stack.

Ambiguous or ambivalent?

Thanks, James, I’ve gladly accepted the substitution. The hazards of late night blogging!
