Reading can be so very quiet

I came across a nice insight, while reading. “Its quiet sad tension is a writer’s quality”, writes Raymond Durgnat, in his review of True Confessions, in The Film Year Book 1983. Yes, quiet sounding prose is a writer’s quality, a being imperative, for writers have many different qualities. And reading a quiet piece of prose is actually a quiet experience. Therefore, reading something can be a very quiet sort of engagement. It’s just feels quiet reading the piece. Sometimes, reading is so very quiet. And, yes, it can be a sad experience, too. But a quiet experience doesn’t necessarily add up to a negative one.
