Nature in Pieces

Show Summary Details


This chapter shows how beauty should appear in literature, and how it can be contained in a certain literary piece, especially when the literary piece describes nature. By conceiving nature architectonically, it can be analyzed, broken into constituent “parts” and rebuilt, its pieces set into more “satisfying” relationships in both an intellectual and aesthetic sense.

Keywords: nature; aesthetics; literature; writing; architectonically

Chapter.  3340 words.
