Day Five
Words, like moths, are captured by writers who pin them to the page in various forms. What writer’s work most deftly captivates you? Why?
Edgar Alan Poe and John Grisham run neck-and-neck in the captivation category. Both could/can evoke a mixture of horror, positive and negative emotion, and pathos in their prose. Examples:
"The Tell-Tale Heart" and The Chamber.
