it was amazing
bookshelves: novelists-or-shorts

Cheating a little; I've only read the essay on Victor Hugo, in a Kindle bundle of Hugo's works with criticism. But the essay was fantastic. One great novelist on another. Or writers of romances, for he examines Hugo's major fiction under the name of romances, which is what John Cowper Powys wrote too. Can we salvage that name, romance? I've wanted to, and this essay sort of explains why we need to. We don't have a word.
