Eudora Welty on Punctuation

"Punctuation for me is very important, even more important than names. It accounts for the rhythm of a story. A comma left out can mean an entirely different feeling, and one put in can mean disaster, if it doesn't belong there." Eudora Welty


  1. my guess is she didn't like ee cummings much lol

  2. Isn't that the quirkiest punctuation advice you've ever read? Commas are more important than names???? Both Welty and cummings were among the great modernists. I wonder if they ever met?!
