Up In the Air

17 Sep

It’s a bird!  It’s a plane!  It’s a literary reference!

Well, two out of three ain’t bad.  Because surely when Richard Wright wrote the skywriting scene in Book I of Native Son he was doing so in order to give a nod to the similar introductory moment in Mrs. Dalloway.

Or not.  Maybe planes were just sort of new and cool and, well, novel for a novel.
