Characters in Fictional Worlds
Understanding Imaginary Beings in Literature, Film, and Other Media
Ed. by Eder, Jens / Jannidis, Fotis / Schneider, Ralf
Aims and Scope
Although fictional characters have long dominated the reception of literature, films, television programs, comics, and other media products, only recently have they begun to attract their due attention in literary and media theory. The book systematically surveys today´s diverse and at times conflicting theoretical perspectives on fictional character, spanning research on topics such as the differences between fictional characters and real persons, the ontological status of characters, the strategies of their representation and characterization, the psychology of their reception, as well as their specific forms and constellations in - and across - different media, from the book to the internet.
