Kurt Vonnegut's Shapes of Stories in infographic form

Kurt Vonnegut's Shapes of Stories in infographic form | on form | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair, Debbie Elicksen
Andrew Raimist's insight:

Kurt Vonnegut's rejected anthropology thesis proposed that the shapes of a culture's stories was at least as important as the shapes of their pots and spearheads.


I've been interested about the potential relationship of literary form to visual form, how we understand them logically, intellectually and emotively. How could a drawing, painting or work of architecture express the ideas contained in a work of literature through the use of form?


You can see Vonnegut discuss his ideas on the shapes of stories in this clip on YouTube:

It does seem that anything Kurt Vonnegut said about writing is worth hearing and so far as I have got, anything he wrote is worth reading.
