While reading The Art Lover by Carole Maso I found her to be quite different in some ways but also similar in others to the writers that we have read Maso changed the literary tradition by having no set story in her novel When reading her novel you go to a family then all of a sudden it switches to her fathers death This kind of writing is very different then some of the novels and poems we have read I will attempt to state why Maso is similar to the other writers who is she different from her and find a place for Maso historically with the different authors In the Art Lover so much goes on from death to the abandonment of children and a mother When she lost her mother to suicide when she was a young girl to a recently deceased father and her best friend dying of AIDS The way she writes is more like poetry then a novel If she is like any other writers we have discussed I think she was closers to Sylvia Plaths style of writing She never actually says what she means as Maso does the same Instead of saying I am writing about my deceased father and writing a whole new book at the same time Also Plath paints a picture in our minds about what she is feeling while Maso is also very descriptive in her thoughts and ideas she also gives you pictures in the book that make you think about what was just said Both of them are pretty similar due to that fact that they are very descriptive and they dont actually let you know exactly whats going on The Art Lover is very depressing when u think about it there isnt much hope for life or love for that matter Both Maso and Plath have very depressing stories and dont give you much hope for something
