Reblogging these two fantastic articles from Beth Stanley Wesson:
Thank you Beth. I am very grateful to read your very thoughtful assessment and insight into Ron as a writer. Time and time again, Ron explores in all of his shows, “what does it mean to be human”. I suppose it is at the heart of all drama, an exploration all writers take on, but Ron has always so deeply explored the human psyche and what motivates us all.
Outlander was another perfect vehicle to continue that journey in. I think for many of us fans, it is exactly that deep exploration of character, which has held us for so long.
Thanks for another great piece.
