So What About Impressionism In Literature?
Impressionism in Literature
While the audience experiences it at the same time as the subject or character, many details may not be clear since the subject has not had time to process what is happening.
Like an Impressionist painting, the details seem fuzzy until you stand back and are able to look at the work as a whole.
Well Known Authors Include Virginia Woolf, D.H. Lawrence, and Joseph Conrad
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
The reader experiences this event at the same time as the character and, therefore, must process it at the same time as well.
