And not only does it fulfill a role in the middle, there is often depth in it that someone who hates it for its lack of depth can't see.
Amen! I think of Hopkins's "Pied Beauty" or any of Wendell Berry's novels (Jayber Crow especially)And, I think of fishing with my grandfather, woodcutting with my fathers and uncles, and being in the kitchen with my aunts on Thanksgiving Day.All of these have a depth to them that can't be underestimated.
Ah, Jayber Crow. That book moves me. It's definitely one of my top ten favorite books. Your comment brought a smile to my face Jon. I agree with the both of you and couldn't have said it better myself.
