Drawing comparisons with other art forms, this book examines the role of aesthetic features in silent reading, such as narrative structure, and the core experience of reading a novel as a story rather than a scholarly exercise.
  • Focuses on the experience of the art form known as the novel
  • Uses the more common perspective of a reader who reads to be told a story, rather than for scholarly or critical analysis
  • Draws comparisons with experience of the other arts, music in particular
  • Explores the different effects of a range of narrative approaches

Keywords: philosophy, literature, art, ethics, novel, tale, reading, narrative
