Self-Exploration Through Literature

Certain fictional characters seem as real as our friends and adversaries because their authors write with insight and intuition about human emotions. By examining our unique reactions in stories and novels, we achieve increased self-understanding. We’ll use contemporary works by Andre Dubus, Alice Munro, Ellen Gilchrist, and others as points of departure as we ask ourselves: What are our feelings and attitudes about the story characters, and what do these emotional responses reveal about ourselves?
