A search for 'Vicomte Turenne' gets a hit for Beige Prose but I can't find it here. This is good, since the purported quote, 'The enemy came. He was defeated. I am tired. Goodnight.', is about a third as long as his actual note. But why does the pointer persist?

The trope description was originally written in a series of sentence fragments, but that's stylized and jarring. Beige prose would be simple, normal sentences. I've rewritten it and just wanted to note my reasons here for the record.

Why beige, anyway? Beige is probably the last color I'd associate with Hemingway.

Shouldn't this be a YMMV trope? Some people might see something as adequately descriptive, some might not...

Should beige really be indexed as white, yellow, and brown?
