Read & Download The Art of Mystery ß PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Maud Casey ´ 4 review Free read The Art of Mystery Flickering light in the distance” Casey the author of several critically acclaimed novels reaches beyond the usual tool kit of fictional elements to ask the uestion Where does mystery reside in a work of fiction She takes us into the Land of Un―a space of uncertainty and unknowing―to find out and looks at the variety of ways mystery is created through cha. I attended a session earlier this year during which Casey presented a lot of the general ideas she covers in this book Important note The title could be misleading If you are writing mysteries and looking for advice specific to that genre this book is not really for you It s about the idea of going somewhere unexpected embarking on a journey in writing and in reading not knowing uite where you will end up or if you will end up anywhere specific It s about willingly surrendering to possibility and using the tools at your disposal as a writer to reveal or to begin to get at through details and descriptions that which cannot be explained The book is practical but not in a step by step prescriptive way It s about creating and experiencing a feeling of exploration and revelation for character author and readerAt times the book drifts into almost supernatural territory which is less interesting to me but the idea of writing towards meaningful uestions is a great one and much of the book is thought provoking for writers

Read & Download The Art of Mystery ß PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Maud Casey ´ 4 review Free read The Art of Mystery Racter image structure and haunted texts including the novels of Shirley Jackson Paul Yoon J M Coetzee and Casey’s wide ranging discussion encompasses spirit photography the radical nature of empathy and contradictory characters as she searches for uestions rather than answers The Art of Mystery is a striking and vibrant addition to the much loved Art of serie. This is not a discussion of the literary genre known as mysteries but rather a discussion of the aspect of fiction that puts the reader in a position of contemplating things inexpressible There is absolutely everything in great fiction but a clear answer as Eudora Welty famously remarkedI felt that Ms Casey did a fine job in the opening chapters of describing to us what she meant by mystery and why its evocation can be so wonderful and haunting in fiction If she could have sustained that discussion and that tone I d have liked the whole book much better But all too soon she was reduced to giving us examples consisting of lengthy plot descriptions spoilers in other words of works exemplifying the virtues of mystery in fiction I went along with the first couple authors I d never heard of but my resistance to being told plots kicked in pretty soon and though I turned the pages I had to skip most of the second half of the book
