Who does John Updike most resemble in our modern culture?
I believe that John looks like Leslie Nielsen.
What modern figure closely resembles the spirit and vibe of John Updike we are writing
I still believe that John Updike
and Leslie Nielsen are the same in spirit. In the book, “Modern Critical
Views John Updike”, Joyce Carol Oates writes “His genius is best excited by the lyric possibilities of tragic
events that, failing to justify themselves as tragedy, turn unaccountably into comedies.”(57) She is saying that his stories usually turn into comedies. Leslie
Nielsen loves doing comedy movies.
