Uses of Literature


Uses of Literature bridges the gap between literary theory and common-sense beliefs about why we read literature.
  • Explores the diverse motives and mysteries of why we read
  • Offers four different ways of thinking about why we read literature - for recognition, enchantment, knowledge, and shock
  • Argues for a new “phenomenology” in literary studies that incorporates the historical and social dimensions of reading
  • Includes examples of literature from a wide range of national literary traditions
