I give my end-of-week post to other authors and bloggers whose work is worth noting. There are so many excellent articles out there, so many good poems and stories that I want to use my online space, once a week, to send all of you to read something you might otherwise miss.
Let this redirect you, like an open door to a view that’s worth seeing. The selected post may be old, but it’s new to me, and it’s beauty still rings true.
This week’s spotlight is an article by Christina Wehner about the relationship between movies and books.
She writes that movies are “an interpretation of books, like any work of literary criticism. And even if people didn’t have movies, I am not sure it’s fair to assume that people would therefore read more.”
Books and movies are separate works of art and should build on the other, according to her, and not be seen as tearing down what has already been constructed. It is a positive argument, discussing the impact movies have on book readers and how, ultimately, the book remains despite what any movie does to it. Enjoy!
