Constrained and UnconstrainedNo unread replies. No replies.At first glance, Charles Portis’s story about “a strange writing factory” seems to be the antithesis to Louis Bury’s “On Writing on Walking.” One celebrates the absence of all restrictions and impositions on writing while the other suggests that constraints are what give written communication its meaning.
1) After reading Portis’s story and Bury’s essay, identify one thought about writing that both share in common. Note that in the case of Portis, the thought will be expressed by one of his fictional characters.
2) In explaining the similarity that you identify, you will also need to summarize their thinking about constrained and unconstrained writing.
3) Support your analysis by quoting from each. Provide a page number in parentheses at the end of the quoted passage. You do not need to provide a full citation with your post.
4) Your post should be between 250 and 300 words. Posts that fall below that word count will not receive full credit.
