Abstract:

Offers a critical approach to fiction based on the principle that every story is written out of an emotional impulse, or a series of emotional impulses, whose satisfactions may be equated with pleasure that we read every story to share in these emotional satisfactions which are the author's gift to us; and that it is no more than common sense that we should therefore assess the quality of every story we read by studying the nature and quality of these pleasures which we are invited to enjoy.
