First Impressions of Haltman

It’s interesting that Haltman was able to identify objects as something that can be used to express emotions and our cultures. We use material culture to understand and define how others cultures were like using objects from their culture. I never realized that we analyzed our description of objects. Here are some quotes that I found interesting from The Secret to Good Writing: It’s About Objects, Not Ideas, “A writer uses abstract words because his thoughts are cloudy; the habit of using them clouds his thoughts still further; he may end by concealing his meaning not only from his readers but also from himself”. Another quote from that same article that I found interesting was “Orwell went a step further than Fowler, actually advising writers to start wordlessly, to think of a visual thing, and then to try to find words that fit it”.
