Demonstrates how reading fiction can contribute to a greater understanding of, and the ability to change, ourselves. Informed by the latest psychological research which focuses on, for example, how identification with fictional characters occurs, and how literature can improve social abilities. Explores traditional aspects of fiction, including character, plot, setting, and theme, as well as a number of classic techniques, such as metaphor, metonymy, defamiliarization, and cues. Includes extensive end-notes, which ground the work in psychological studies. Features excerpts from fiction which are discussed throughout the text, including works by William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Kate Chopin, Anton Chekhov, James Baldwin, and others."@en ;
