books| fates and furies

I am currently reading Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff. I have just started it really, only 44 pages in. The writing is quite unique – winding sentences, choppy, reading like poetry at times.

A quote that made me pause:

Denton Thrasher, the English teacher, in response to his own question regarding the difference between tragedy and drama explains,

“It’s a question of perspective. Storytelling is a landscape, and tragedy is comedy is drama. It simply depends on how you frame what you’re seeing” (p.26).
