Can A Good Story Be a Piece of Art?

    Art-Can a good story (one that makes you think-does not tell the answer to all of your questions-one that leaves you wanting to know more) act as a work of art in process?

    Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse is a work of art to me. In German its almost a poem and yet it tells a clear story from which the reader must derive their own message. jael

    Great art is not about giving answers, it's about revealing truth.  That is not the same thing.

    Yes! How amazing is it to be able to read something and through those words be transported to a world that is created by what you've read. Good writing is definitely a work of art in my eyes! wink

    Good writing claws out emotions you didn't even know you owned.  Good writing changes you in ways you never saw coming.  Good writing surprises, teases, opens new worlds.

    Two people can present you with the same facts and one grouping of words will leave you breathless.

    Of course it is art.
