Not written by me!
I haven’t read all the articles (in my TO DO list), so I do not agree or disagree. I just thought to put it here for my own reference, and yours.

I’ve been watching this video, this ‘found footage’, over and over in the last few weeks. Mark Twain. I can see him, moving on film. I’ve read his words, read reviews and critiques of his work. I’ve dreamed alongside his characters, I’ve been carried away by his tales.
And on this palette of faded greys, I can see him. He’s just a man, and he is now dead. But his words aren’t. Maybe that is why I love words. They don’t die 🙂
…The father of American literature, Mark Twain was also known by his fondness in science and scientific inquiry. He developed a close and lasting friendship
And that’s what I like to see, a happy super-talented friend whose brilliant novel will be published soon 🙂 Keep an eye on this one 😉
Narrativity presumes a special taste for plot. And this taste for plot was always very present in the Anglo-Saxon countries and that explains their high quality of detective novels.
Is it true?
With all my admiration for Eco, I wouldn’t want to dismiss other nations and cultures’ sense for plot.
