I have always felt that pooping and poop have been neglected in literature. While there are exceptions, most masterpieces never mention our lower digestive functions or products. Nor do most news accounts or descriptions, in spite of the omnipresence of toilets and poop in our everyday life. I think some immortal works of literary art, as well as journalistic accounts, could be livened up and made more realistic by introducing images of poop and pooping. Here are two examples of my copying a writer’s style:
From Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility:
Marianne and Willoughby halted their horses and dismounted in order to enjoy the view from the high hill. Willoughby suggested that they sit on the grass, "being careful," as he said, "to inspect the ground before alighting." Marianne smiled, looked carefully at the small tussock to be sure no horse-apples were in the near vicinity, and sat, looking contentedly at the hills and forests arising in the distance. Her glance strayed to the horse from whose back she had just climbed down. The horse's tail, formerly at rest, had risen to point nearly straight behind; its anus slowly expanded outward, gradually opening to admit to daylight a series of hard, dark-brown turds that thudded on the soft grass. "Nice movement," said Willoughby approvingly.
From Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre:
On the second day of my melancholy journey from Thornfield, I was desperately hungry, yet far from even the smallest village. The grassy hills stretched away to a dark forest some miles distant. In spite of my meager rations the day before, I felt the need to relieve myself, but could see no available shelter. The land was so lonely, however, that merely being behind a small rise of ground gave sufficient privacy, so I squatted down and did what I could. The resulting feces were dry, hard, and small; but they gave relief from that need. I continued toward the forest, hoping to encounter at least a road to the nearest town.
I love and revere these and other giant works of literature and would not in actuality change or add a word to them. Obviously, my two examples above are not direct quotes or paraphrases from either novel, so don't bother to try to find them. Please come up with your own examples from literature, or poetry, or news stories, or whatever genre appeals, and see if you cannot inject a note of earthy realism into them. Have fun!
