Perspektivische Interaktion im Roman
Interacting Perspectives in the Novel: Cognition, Reception, Interpretation

Kognition, Rezeption, Interpretation

How do we internalize literary characters and their fictional consciousness when we are reading? How does multi-perspectivity function? Drawing on modern cognitive research, this study addresses how the perspectives of different characters interact, and demonstrates that this interaction plays a critical role in our understanding and interpretation of literary texts. Using the English novel as an example, the author develops a general theory of perspectival interaction and demonstrates its explanatory power through detailed illustrative analyses.
