How to Recognize Attitude Expressed by the Author Towards a Subject.
I disagree with a lot of what’s written in the writing course about recognizing an author’s attitude or feelings toward a subject. Because authors are actors who perform on paper or keyboard. The characters or subjects they write about aren’t always a true indication of their feelings on the particular subject.
It is fictional and often times no real indication anymore than a actor who plays a space alien is actual an alien from Mars.
Yes, even some fictional books are social and political statements but not every book. How do you know if a book is social and political statements? I would say by the author’s seriousness on writing about the subject. But then again, sometimes people write about what’s popular at the moment with no real emotional investment in the issue.
