<p>Literature?in fact, all the arts?are customarily in the middle of some "movement" that promises to change the whole nature of the endeavor. Recent movements include hyperrealism, symbolism, deconstructionism, existentialism, surrealism, and many other "isms." One interesting literary movement goes by the name of minimalism. In a minimalist work, sentences are short, as are paragraphs. Even minimalist books are short, with very little narrative connective tissue. Most of the story is told via dialogue, which in the best examples, tells the characters? hidden story and makes the reader care about what happens to them.</p>
