Subject: Writing

Question:

What's the point of editing?

Inactive
Joseph L.
Answer:

Spell-check and auto-correct, are helpful, yes, and they eliminate most typos. However, there are typos and misspellings that are still technically words, so they won't be corrected, yet they are completely different than what you intended. For example, one computer pop-up message, instead of reading "Are you sure you want to exit? Yes/No," said "Are you sure you want to exist? Yes/No." Dangerous stuff.

Question:

What do Classical giants like Beethoven and modern sensations like the Beatles have in common?

Inactive

Answer:

These musicians, separated by one hundred fifty years, share one undeniable trait: deceptive simplicity. Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, irresistibly singable and memorable, was revolutionar for its time, since it was an unprecedented size for an ensemble and the first time that a Symphony included Choral parts. The Beatles' hit "Hard Day's Night," is simple enough to sung by countless screaming and fainting fans, yet there is still debate on what chord the track opens with. How can a song be simple enough for a child to sing, yet complicated enough that no one can agree on a single harmonic analysis? Rock and Roll!

Question:

What perspective did J.D. Salinger write Catcher in the Rye, and what advantage(s) is/are gained by this perspective?

Answer:

Holden Caulfield is both the protagonist and narrator in Salinger's iconic novel. This unreliable, first-person point-of-view creates an authenticity, dramatic irony, and personal charm that would be achieved no other way. His teenage angst, hypocrisy, and absolute lovability shine through and make the book the classic that it is.
