In a third-person narrative, I want to punctuate the following sentence:
Wasn't art supposed to impact the reader in an emotional way, she wondered.
How would that line be punctuated? I know I could use italics, but my question is, should it be,
Wasn't art supposed to impact its audience in an emotional way? she wondered.
or what? nothing seems entirely right to me. I know I could just change the whole thing—"She wondered whether or not art was ... yada yada ..."; but she is thinking this in response to someone and it's almost a rhetorical question, so I'd like it to remain the way I have it, but be punctuated properly—if that's possible. Grr.
