Abstract:

The articles in this issue attempt to better understand the specific relationship between literature and the workings of the brain/mind. It includes articles from a literary scholar and poet who examines the neurological basis of writing poetry, and from four literary scholars: one who looks at the relation between some specific poetic techniques and the functioning of certain processing systems in the brain, one who examines how bodily systems outside the brain are enlisted in the reading experience, one who uses a philosophical approach to look at the specific issue of solipsism and its treatment in literature, and one who looks at how literature is an example of a conceptual integration system that makes us distinctly human.
