It is also of its time and circumstance and to change it tinkers with history. How would we understand how life has changed if the attitudes Buchan describes had been expurgated? Would the book feel as authentic and fresh if somebody had cleaned it up, denying us a glimpse into the minds and social mores of a century ago? What Buchan wrote comes naturally and anybody familiar with the period and its writing would recognise that something was misplaced.
- Traces of the Norse Mythology in the Isle of Man!
- The Gemstone Chronicles Book One: The Carnelian.
- Christmas at Rosie Hopkins Sweetshop.
Of course we need to recognise that life and attitudes have changed. Where sensitivities in a particular circumstance are acute, we must also tread lightly. Often enough PC restrictions, even if often over-stressed and ill-placed, drive people wild. Writers know this, and where they choose to offend they know, or should know, that repercussions will follow.
But it is also their responsibility to carry the can, whether of toxicity or obfuscation, if they pick it up. Interesting to read both comments. Thanks for making these points. The reader further suggests that there are plenty of other words to use, which deprives me of words somewhat!
