Fiction Gutted: The Establishment and the Novel
Price: $7.00 USD. Words: 31,150. Language: English. Published: January 31, 2011. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy, Fiction » Literature » Literary
Fiction is too dangerous to established interests, too powerful, moreso than nonfiction because of its extra aesthetic appeals, and because it can contain nonfiction, in virtually every sense; thus, the ideological controls are tighter for fiction than nonfiction. Fiction is too useful, too popular, too influential not to be domineered and gutted in central ways by the status quo.
