Essays on Fiction and Perspective
Peter Lang, 2004 - Literary Criticism - 355 pages
The book is the result of a conference about the interrelated concepts of fiction and perspective in Stockholm 2001. The concepts of fiction and perspective have played a number of crucial roles in the Humanities during the last fifty years, in particular in the intersection between linguistics, the aesthetic disciplines, and philosophy. The writers in this anthology discuss some of the most debated questions in this context, such as different conceptions of point of view in narrative fiction, historical counterfactual fiction, the relationship between fact and fiction in historiography, how to understand and analyze statements about an individual's belief perspective, and how everyday discourse is anchored in perspective views of the world.
