In response to The senses, written by Courtney Lynne on July 24, 1998 at 13:48:23
] I should probably let someone answer this in a more intellectual way, but I felt compelled to put in my two cents worth. ;-) I wonder if JA doesn't use senses much because her novels are driven by what's going on in the character's minds. I've read all of her major works and I can't really think of a character reacting out of their senses.
She describes explicitly what is going on in their minds, doesn't she? But not really what their sensations are, either to the externals, or to the results of the plot. I compare her with Charlotte Bronte, who wallows in sensations all the time. I know which writer is the more exhausting to read!
