"Only connect."
--E. M. Forster

What does fiction have to offer us? (1) 
"I will tell you something about stories. . . . They aren't just entertainment. . . .
They are all we have . . . to fight off illness and death.
You don't have anything if you don't have the stories."
--Leslie Marmon Silko, Ceremony, 1977

What does fiction have to offer us? (2) 
"
[T]he purpose of playing...was and is, to hold...the mirror up to nature..."
--William Shakespeare, Hamlet III.ii

What does fiction have to offer us? (3)
 "She told them that the only grace they could have
was the grace they could imagine.
That if they could not see it, they could not have it."
--Toni Morrison, Beloved

What does fiction have to offer us? (4)
"If in my life I have developed any ability to understand
those who are other to me,
other in race or gender or culture or sexual preference,
a good deal of my training in empathy must have come from the practice
 fiction and poetry have given me in taking on other selves, other lives."

--David H. Richter, Falling into Theory, 1994
