De kunst van fictie by James Salter, Peter Verstegen, John D. Casey

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC De kunst van fictie Toen Salter jaar was was hij de eerste Kapnick Writer in Residence aan de Universiteit van Virginia Charlottesville Hij gaf toen drie lezingen die in dit boekje gebundeld zijn met een inleiding van John Casey De lezingen zijn getiteld De kunst van fictie Hoe schrijf je een roman en Leven in de kunst .

In De kunst van fictie deelt Salter zijn niet aflatende bewondering voor auteurs en boeken die van grote invloed zijn geweest op zijn schrijverschap waaronder het werk van Balzac Flaubert Babel C line Dreiser en Faulkner Hiernaast biedt het boek een fascinerende inkijk in een schrijversleven Salter schrijft openhartig over de afwijzingsbrieven die hij van uitgevers ontving over hoe hij niet n maar twee negatieve recensies in The New York Times kreeg voor hetzelfde boek over de voordelen van s morgens dan wel s nachts schrijven en over geldzorgen die de kop opsteken tijdens lange middagen .

Een vraag die Salter in dit boek stelt is waarom iemand de pen ter hand neemt Streeft een schrijver naar rijkdom of naar bewondering Komt het schrijven voort uit geldingsdrang Het antwoord dat hijzelf formuleert is simpel een wereld waarin niets wordt opgeschreven zal verdwijnen .
