Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Zeitgeist

French logo of the zeitgeist movementImage via Wikipedia

Zeitgeist:  noun - the spirit of the age; the trend of thought or feeling in a period, in particular as reflected in art, literature, etc.

'Writers such as William T. Vollmann , Amy Tan, John Ashbery, Mary Oliver, and Jonathan Safran Foer are considered by many to embody the zeitgeist of our age; I have my doubts, but if they actually do, then I fear for the future of literature.'
