Dietz: Class Blog Dos

I liked what Jenny had to say about literature. I thought it was interesting to reflect on the importance of the way we use our words. I like to remember that each word in a play is specifically chosen and crafted by the playwright to create a certain effect. When we use the manipulations of syntax and word choices, we begin to create the world of our play, and the literature has like-magical powers. A good playwright asks himself if the structure of his text is presented in the most effective way to support the message; he imagines possible future reactions to his text and uses literature to craft each reaction.
