In response to when prose becomes poetry, the prosaic heroic, written by greg on October 04, 1997 at 16:38:23
] i can't let ch. 23 pass without paying homage to perhaps the most exquisite prose, in my most favorite chapter, in all of fiction.
I read JE this summer for the first time (unfortunately, I don't have the time to reread for the group read) and was struck with the opening paragraph to this chapter. The imagery is beautiful and even a little uplifting. I go back to this chapter every so often and reread it, because it is my favorite scene in the entire novel. Thanks for pointing it out.
