Pictures of Theories: The Iceberg Theory

Theories_Iceberg Theory

The Iceberg Theory, Literary Studies: 

If a writer of prose knows enough about what he is writing about, he may omit things that he knows and the reader, if the writer is writing truly enough, will have a feeling of those things as strongly as though the writer had stated them. The dignity of movement of an iceberg is due to only one-eighth of it being above water.

 Ernest Hemingway, Death in the Afternoon
