Lit: The End of Books

The End of Books By ROBERT COOVER


“Writing students are notoriously conservative creatures.

They write stubbornly and hopefully within the tradition of what they have read.

Getting them to try out alternative or innovative forms is harder than talking them into chastity as a life style.

But confronted with hyperspace, they have no choice: all the comforting structures have been erased.

It’s improvise or go home.”


Note: I copied the text from this page into Author and used Liquid | Flow’s Copy/As Flow and pasted that in to make it easier to read and it worked. I’m now experimenting with this in Author.
