“Now and then a dead black wave would race over the scene…a cloud’s gliding shadow…now and then…”
—O.E. Rølvaag, from Giants in the Earth
AboutPoets think in lines, prose writers in sentences; the best of both work from sound to sense, with an ear for the music in their compositions. S for Sentence celebrates lyricism in prose, the play and craft at work in the artful sentence. We post a sentence a month along with comments by a guest writer on the craft that shapes it, on what makes it great. In one or two sentences.
