Effectism

Posted by wkarrer on February 10, 2011 at 8:07 AM

a term used (introduced?) by W. D. Howells for distortions of realism to trigger emotions in the readers (melodrama, sentimentalism). Add surprise, suspense, epiphany, and even "magic realism" ?

Mention of  the term in:


Updike, John. Vermischte Essays. 1991.Übs. W. Winkler. Reinbek: Rowohlt, 1995.

That is an interesting word. How does it relate to expressionism in painting and the performing arts
