Cavalleri, and so on.  I hope you will find it of enough interest not only
to buy it yourself, but to pass this message on to other lists to which you

This book goes straight to the basic human questions about literature when
it explains how our brains convert the imaginary events of stories, poems,
plays, and films into real pleasure. Our brains can do this, because we know
in our frontal lobes that we cannot act to change the literary work. This is
only one of the special ways our brains react as we go from the creation of
literature to being transported, to “poetic faith,” to enjoyment, to
meaning, and finally to evaluation. Each of these parts of the literary
process draws on brain processes in an unusual way. *Literature and the
Brain * describes and explains these brain changes, giving us a new
understanding of what we do when we do literature and why we do it.
