iUniverse, 2000 - Fiction - 368 pages
Darkness and Light: Private Writing as Art is an anthology of contemporary journals, diaries, and notebooks. Excerpts from the private writings of 14 sensitive and reflective women and men are included, as well as two essays that address questions surrounding the journal-as-art. The pieces contained in the collection offer a variety of writing styles, subjects, and themes. Editors Olivia Dresher and Victor Munoz feel that the domain of the journal can encompass much more than the typically historical or therapeutic, and wish to present the concept of the journal/diary/notebook as a distinct literary genre, as an open testament to the full and mysterious variety of human life and thought.
