Narrative perspective is the faculty through which humans understand, structure, and explore the world that confronts them. This is the first volume to bring together the theoretical study of perspective with the rigor of experimental studies, combining work in narratology with that in linguistics, philosophy, film studies, literary theory, and cognitive psychology. The chapters are grouped thematically and drawn together by the editors, who provide guidance through this new and fascinating interdisciplinary territory.About the Author:
