In my essay, the reasons for adopting cognitive theories of emotion in the context of literary analysis will be weighed. Furthermore, I shall make reference to the fact that only cognitively-based emotions result in individual, variable and relative emotionally-steered actions, whereas non-cognitive emotions result in inescapable consequences. This is because cognitive emotions can be defined as radically individual emotions, which permit deliberate choices

; hence, philosophy of law has become a fundamental aspect of literary analysis. Even more than this, literature in the postmodern period became self-conscious and aware of its tools of analysis. Therefore, if in the past law entered the literary text in a subconscious way, stealthily and almost without the text being aware of its presence, now, the many theories stemming out of the legal field and the debates about law as literature and law in literature have transformed the literary perspective.

Broadly speaking, the term literary documentary will be used in this project to refer to the narrative mode of the corpus. By narrative mode, I mean the manner in which the narrative is rendered. In other words, literary documentary refers to the individual documentary and narrative strategies chosen to
