>>23283663 Prose > Drawings I'll give you an example, from Atlas Shrugged: >“She lay in bed, propped up on pillows of pale green linen. Her bed jacket was pale green satin, worn with the untouched perfection of a window model; its lustrous folds looked as if the crinkle of tissue paper still lingered among them. The light, shaded to a tone of apple blossoms, fell on a table that held a book, a glass of fruit juice, and toilet accessories of silver glittering like instruments in a surgeon’s case. Her arms had a tinge of porcelain. There was a touch of pale pink lipstick on her mouth.”
Do you think anyone could draw this and make it look as amazing as Ayn Rand makes it sound?
>>23283951 Can you tell the difference between the prosaic part of a novel and the thematic part? We are not talking about what philosophy Ayn Rand is pushing. We talking about the words she uses and how she arranges them.
And the passage is beautiful and I doubt that this could be represented in visual media without losing much of the impact or it looking really, kinda dumb.
