Very good point. I suspect there are various societal forces pushing writers, especially new ones, in this direction. Also, my feeling is that creative writing courses tend to produce a homogenous style / approach.

The modern novel has given us the Free Indirect style, interiority, memory and it's blurry edges, the 'tableau vivant', and much more.
With most of what I read/heard today, I struggled to work out where I was. What was happening was unclear and overdramatic I searched for purity
