A Seven Point Grid for Greatness
It is fashionable to say that all writing is of equal value. I think that this is nonsense! It may have equal value as self-expression, but not as ART. All the great writers have known when they reached a level of achievement that satisfied them. They often communicate with each other on this point, commiserating or congratulating as appropriate. After 30 years of teaching literature I became aware of a need to find a way of assessing ‘greatness’. This CD explores the processes through which all great writers pass in order to reach what they wish to express about the human condition in their own time and place. Their struggles are often immense. Often their lives are ravaged and cut short by illness. But what is remarkable is the extent to which they feel responsible to truthful rendition of experience. In this lecture I have outlined a 7 point grid which will help in assessing greatness.
