Literature and Truth: Imaginative Writing as a Medium for Ideas.


Literature and Truth: Imaginative Writing as a Medium for Ideas

Richard Lansdown



222 pages



Costerus New Series; Volume 222


Lansdown collects nine of his essays on the presence and activity of discursive ideas or bodies of thought in works of imaginative literature. These discourses can be religious, philosophical, scientific, political, even literary-critical, he says, in so far as tragedy is subject to discourse as well as to a dramatic form. His topics include cognitive and non-cognitive accounts of imaginative literature, the printed medium: Wordsworth and books, evangelicalism and evolution: James Montgomery's Pelican Island, politics and art: James Kelman's Not Not While the Giro, and from the other shore: Bronislaw Malinowski's A Diary in the Strict Sense of the Term.
