Evoking Setting and Place in Fiction

Lecture no. 18 from the course: Writing Great Fiction: Storytelling Tips and Techniques

Evoking Setting and Place in Fiction

Taught by Professor James Hynes | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Time and place are critical in most recent fiction, so today’s writer must know how to evoke a setting. But, as with so many techniques in this course, setting exists along a continuum, from the richly detailed (as in Bleak House) to just a few sparse details (as in Pride and Prejudice). Find out when—and how much—to describe your story’s setting.
