Sara Gentry – happy ending

Ajouter un commentaire

« A lot of people are down on the concept of a happy ending, and it’s not a new thing. The Greeks were entertained by tragedies, Shakespeare peppered his repertoire with catastrophe, and many of the writers in Austen’s time were far more interested in philosophizing than lifting hearts. While they might not be considered beach reads nowadays, Austen’s novels were for the most part meant to be light, funny social commentary, sometimes with a slight moral agenda. The happy ending was mandatory. » ~Sara Gentry, editor turned novelist. From 5 Timeless Lessons We Learned from Jane Austen
