i have to write an essay involving that, but i’m not even sure of what it is!
lol same here :3 hope its not too late but selection of detail is the authors choice of (specific) events, words, incidents, etc. which are used to make or create a narrative/scene .
Selection of detail in literature refers to the details that the author reveals for the purpose of adding to the desired dominant impression. These details are selected based on what they tell the reader about the person, place or thing being described.
It’s really interesting
You raise some good points here.
