    PDF transportjobsite.co.uk · Enemies of Promise PDF ó Enemies of MOBI :´ enemies free, promise epub, Enemies of download, Enemies of Promise eBookIn the first part of this book Connolly examines the dual trends of stripped down vernacular storytelling and elevated stylistically ambitious prose in early 20th century novels He looks at the strengths and weaknesses of both styles and proposes a synthesis It's interesting stuff rendered dated in its prescriptions by the fact that the dam was about burst a vast array of styles far beyond the elitist 'mandarin' or demotic 'vernacular' of his analysis were to explode on the literary scene And yet the essential ebb and flow of forces of stylistic complication and simplification are still a valid way to view literary history In the second part he lists the factors that can prevent a writer from realising his promise Some of these are largely valid and others seem a bit ridiculous try telling Shirley Jackson t

    PDF transportjobsite.co.uk · Enemies of Promise PDF ó Enemies of MOBI :´ enemies free, promise epub, Enemies of download, Enemies of Promise eBookI really only found the first third of this book interesting I think it lays out an excellent premise in what Connolly dubs The Predicament The predicament is between a ornate type of writing and a stripped down direct version I found Connolly's dissection of the two styles rather lopsided He seemed to lambaste ornate writing with an excessive fierceness Seemingly chalking its use to insecure writers uncertain of what they were trying to say When he does find merit in this mode of writing he seems to tie appreciation to its work as only being possible in a bygone age and for a ever shrinking leisurely class of readers When he discusses the straight forward journalistic type of writing he recognizes that it is the style in favor at the time and doesn't really expand much further beyond that Connolly then seems to abandon the predicament he's exploring and wraps everything up with a rather convoluted summary indicating that trends between the style are entirely reactive The impli
