Bathos, And How To Avoid It

Here’s a recent YouTube video on bathos, why bathos is bad, and how to avoid it in your writing.  The clip is both precise and dead-on in its analysis of the reasons why the quality of Marvel movies has been slipping lately, and the author really, really makes me want to go see Wonder Woman.  (I haven’t seen it yet.)

The video also builds to a rare, but honest, defense of the quality of “sincerity,” and includes some memorably-good advice about trusting one’s material.

Well worth your time.
