Abstract/Description

This article outline my process of researching the clash of beliefs between those who believe that art is more important than artist and those who place the artist ahead of the created artwork in importance, in context of the novel Go Set a Watchman. I also discuss two solutions — the reader and author accepting books like To Kill a Mockingbird as a phenomenon, or the reader and writer creating a dialogue based on mutual respect — that can ultimately help to resolve this dissonance.
