Is 'reminiscent of' an idiom.

Plz explain the answer

Thanks

'Reminiscent of' is an adj which means 'reminding of' or 'bringing to mind something else' It should follow a noun as in the sentence: "Your experience reminds me of one [experience] I had a year ago".

Therefore, in answering this question we can rule out all answers (A,B,D) which refer to Leon Forrest, not his work. E is out because 'resembles', although similar to 'reminds' does't mean the same thing.

So, I think that the correct answer is C, because it refers to Leon Forrest's work and uses 'reminiscent of' correctly.

Hey All,

There seems to be a lingering question on this, so I thought I'd weigh in. Even if "resembles" were better than "reminiscent of" (a distinction I fail to make), answer choice E still has problems here. You can't "more resemble" something. In fact, the correct comparative idiom for the verb "to resemble" is "more closely resemble". I don't know why that is, except that it's an idiom.

Also, "reminiscent of" is very often used in literary comparisons. Who are these 800score people, and why are they ripping off questions and then explaining them incorrectly? I call for a boycott! : )

C is correct.

A, B and D compares Leon Forrest to Henry Miller’s obsessive narratives, Toni Morrision’s mythic languages and James Joyce’s internal explorations.

E is incorrect. You cannot say “Leon Forrest’s work more resembles that of Henry Miller’s obsessive narratives”. It is same as saying “Leon Forrest’s work more resembles WORK of Henry Miller’s obsessive narratives”.

Could someone add the respective underline? This makes the questions/solutions much easier to comprehend...

Moreover, I think the answer choice is C. We are comparing the works of the various artists, hence only answer choices which do the same are plausible, of those answer choices I like the grammar of option C.

Best regards,
Chris
