... i adore wilder. such a force of simple language and heavy handed symbolism. he moves you with little because it is the language of solitude and silence, of recriminations and regrets, of dreaming and nightmares... it is the realization of never stopping.

Wonderful, wonderful. Some elements of the writing may seem dated (that "folksyness") but really holds up incredibly well. Pullman Car Hiawatha absolutely takes the cake, symphonic structure, the musicality in the language, and so imaginatively conceived!
